For a way to live John 21:19b-24 with family and friends:
Among family and friends decisions about each other are hard to make and for the others hard to accept. Perhaps, all need the grace to let each other be.
[A way to live John 21:19b-24 with family and friends; suggested by one of the readings in many churches for the first Sunday after Christmas Day from the Revised Common Lectionary for 12/27/15. The risen Jesus tells Peter to follow him and he sees a painful end for Peter. Peter asks what about the “beloved disciple” (possibly John). Jesus says he will live until he, Jesus, returns. When Peter questions him, Jesus asks for freedom to make his own decisions.]
