Catch and Release

I’m not much of a fisherman, but I do know what it’s like to get skunked.  In Luke 5:1-11, when Jesus approaches Simon and his fishing buddies, they had been out all night and had caught nothing.  But, he invites them to get back in the boat and head out. One more time. In doing so, they not only helped Jesus preach the Word, they hauled in a catch of fish that was so big it almost sunk them.  Literally.

If all that wasn’t crazy enough, Jesus tells them they will become fishers of people.  But, instead of tangling peolpe up, they would be setting them free… whole, new kind of catch and release!  

Join us this Sunday to learn more.  And, while we’re at it, we’ll celebrate the Lord’s Supper together!  

Hope to see you there,

Pastor Ben
