Our word this week is nets! The Scripture reading for Sunday tells the familiar story of the calling of the disciples. What is interesting, however, is like so many other stories, the Gospels tell the call story differently! There is no "immediately" mentioned in this story, as in "immediately they...followed. Instead Luke tells the story with care and deliberation. Dare I say...he SLOWS down the story in typical Lucan fashion! Instead of scratching our head and puzzling over the challenging way that the disciples in the other Gospel's telling, follow so quickly, with only a word or invitation from Jesus, here we see and follow the sequence of events that leads to this life-changing action. Click here to read the story in Luke 5:1-11.

Some of you have shared that you are having difficulty connecting with Zoom. Regrettably, Zoom is the best way for us to connect at this time as it allows us to SEE and hear each other, it’s like a video conference call. You do need to have a camera and microphone to connect (so if you have an older computer this can be a challenge as some of us have discovered.) You can use your phone (be sure you are using wifi rather than data) or Ipad to connect with Zoom and I am working on a low cost camera and microphone option, so contact me if you are interested. I am also happy to help you connect. The first step is to set up a free Zoom account, which you can do at zoom.us. Once you have an account, give me a call and we can do a practice Zoom meeting or you can click on the link in my weekly email to join me for Zoom office hours at the appropriate time.
