In John 21:1-17 Jesus met with his disciples on the seashore because they had returned to fishing after his death. What did he say to them and what does it mean for our life of discipleship today? Pastor Bob helps us to understand the call to disciples in the light of Jesus' continued presence with us.
Join us for 32 minutes of prayer, scripture, a number of favorite hymns, preaching as well as communion. You may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." If you would like to share with us at the table that goes beyond earthly boundaries of time, place, and structure, we ask that you prepare a piece of bread of some type and a drink such as grape juice, wine, or water. As we pray, our prayers extend to where you are. If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us.
