As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.
- What job are you hoping to have when you’re done with college?
- What are the communities (clubs, organizations) that are important to you? What draws you to them and what keeps you there?
- Do you consider yourself a follower or an admirer of Jesus? Is there a difference between the two?
- Why do you think Simon, Andrew, James, and John immediately followed Jesus?
Are you a follower? This week we hear another story of the calling of the disciples. Each day we make choices to follow certain people, follow specific dreams, and follow our inner voice. At Trinity Commons this Sunday at 6 pm we’ll reflect on what it means to be a follower, how to know what to follow, and who’re the voices we should be listening to as we try and find a path. As always we’ll have a delicious free supper thanks to our friend Barbara Sloan and the folks at St. Andrew’s. I hope you’ll join us on Sunday.
