PETER\u2013 WALKING ON WATER
As Jesus stands by the water\u2019s edge at Lake Galilee he sees Peter walking towards
him, muttering to himself and angrily throwing stones into the water.
Hello Peter! Going for a walk?
Don\u2019t you start Jesus! I have had enough of them. \u2018Look!
Peter\u2019s going for a walk.Glug, Glug, Glug, Glug.\u2019 \u2018If you\u2019re
