This Sunday we spend time with one of the most well known stories of Jesus. Interestingly, Luke places this story at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry and John tells a very similar story as a post-resurrection account. After a demoralizing night of attempted fishing, Jesus instructs Simon to go back out into the deep waters and drop his nets for a catch. Miraculously, Simon pulls in such an abundance of fish that other boats and fisherfolks come to his aid. We explore Simon’s strong reaction to what he witnessed and Jesus’ invitation to turn his life upside down and begin fishing for people.
Scripture passages: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 5:1-11
