As we continue to follow the events after the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of John puts Jesus at the shore as his followers were fishing. Jesus invites them to share their fish, but the fishing was not going well. Our Lord asks them to cast their nets again, and this time they catch so much that their nets began to break. John tells us the exact number...153. 153, a little strange...random...but so insightful. 2 Chronicles tells us that 153 thousand were invited and came together to worship the Lord. They, the 153, came from all walks of life. Today Jesus challenges each of us to '"go fishing". To go out to the world and proclaim the good news...no matter who, no matter where...just go. The Good News is that good because God is good...all the time. Come & See and then tell others to do the same!
