Adventures on the street…

I’ve spent a few hours on the streets of Peterborough with a trainee vicar on placement with me called Keri. She’s an incredibly gifted people person.

Signs and wonders through signs and wonder-full flowers.

How do you get to pray for miracles in other people’s lives?

Through acts of kindness and availability, together…
