do not be afraid

I wonder if you know the story of how Jesus calls his first disciples?  My memory of the story is Jesus walking along the shore and he sees Simon and Andrew mending their nets and he says to them, ‘follow me’.  And they do.  And a little further along they meet James and John and he says the same to them.  And they leave their nets and their father, Zebedee, in the boat.

But that’s not quite what happens in Luke’s version.  There’s more to it than that.  But isn’t there always?

So, let’s dive in and see what we can discover together!
