Peter was at New Hope in Kentville on Saturday and Sunday. His primary focus was to assist them in the further development of the churches’ mission program and thrust. While there, he picked up a great quote from Pastor Scott’s message yesterday, “Anger is inescapable. The question is not if you will experience it but how you will express it.”
