Sermon: Find the Meeting Places

puzzle6“Find the Meeting Places”

(January 17, 2016) Jesus calls the disciples to step out of their comfort zones, yes, but not to do something totally alien to them– for a group of people who know fishing, he invites them to fish for people. When God calls us, it’s usually to use gifts that we already have, just to use them in a different way. What gifts and joys do we have, and where do they intersect with the needs around us, so that we may find Frederick Buechner’s definition of our vocation: “the place where our deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet”? (Exodus 3:1-12Matthew 4:12-22)
