As The Spirit Moves: The Third Sunday after the Epiphany
The Holy Spirit calls each of us in many ways, to serve and minister according to our skills. The first four disciples dropped their nets and followed Jesus when he called, but they had experience well suited to the mission that lay ahead. Just as they sought out schools of fish to gather in their nets, they sought out the poor and weary who hungered for relief, gathering them in the net of the Good News. As they felt God's spirit moving within them we too should listen for the Spirit within us, to use the gifts and skills that God has given us to bring ourselves and those we meet into the community of His church.
The Scripture references are Jonah 3:1-5,10, Psalm 62:6-9, and 1 Corinthians 7:29-31. The Gospel reference is Mark 1:14-20.
