Listen to the Sermon.
Dear People of God, my brothers and sisters in Christ,
I want to begin by saying that, five months into this interim time, I continue to be so very glad God called me to be here in ministry with you. Thank you for welcoming me and my family into your community so easily and warmly.
In our gospel today, Jesus approaches James and John, fishermen mending their nets, doing what they love and do best, and says to them, “Come with me, and I will make you fish for people.”
Come with me and do what you love, for the sake of creating the kingdom of God. Not, leave behind what you love to follow me, but, come with me, and bring your deepest passions and use them to share the gospel with the world.
