After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
"This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel."
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
"Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men and followed him.
After reading the first time…invite to share, a word, a phrase, idea, image or thought.
After reading the second time… invite to share: What I must leave behind in order to follow Jesus more faithfully as a disciple is…
After reading the third time… invite to share… what I am called to do or what I am called to change.
Then move around the circle…offering prayer of thanks (Thank you God…) and petition (Please God…). Conclude by praying the Lord’s Prayer together.
Remember one is always free to pass.
