The God who goes fishing
An extract from the sermon for Sunday, 21 January 2018 ...
Today we are glimpsing an epiphany moment indeed.
God has gone fishing, and she is seeking to catch us.
God is drawing us into the work of the kingdom, into the work of ensuring that God is well is done on earth as it is in heaven.
There is nothing more important than this work, but it is not an invitation to an easy life.
But God is a patient fisher, and she will stay the distance until the divine dream for a world of beauty, and justice and peace is fulfilled.
May we not only have the grace to hear the God who calls, but also the courage to respond to that call and spend our lives in the service of others.
