Working or fishing today?

Mark 1:16-18

As Jesus walked beside the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said. “and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him.

Sometimes when I look around the train I get thinking about the amount of time we spend on it. Not the time the commute takes, but the years. This week, I thought that it would be  really sad if people took the train for 30 or so years but never knew that God could be in their lives. And then how much of a difference that could make if they did know. This blog is designed to reach those people so my wish is to reach as many as possible. Not because I want it to be popular but because they should get the chance to know about Jesus. Most of the people who read this already have a relationship with God. So, if you know of someone who you can share the story of Jesus with, I encourage you to try. This isn’t a bad place to start, It’s a conversation starter at the very least. There are occasionally cards pinned up in the waiting rooms of Darien and Noroton Heights. Feel free to take them and share them. As it goes on to say at the end of Mark 15:15-16, He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” I prefer the ‘baptized’ part of that passage!


‘Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your son to save us. We pray that we can go into the world and help bring more people to you. Give us the strength, faith and words to be able to do so’ – Amen!

"What, now? This minute?"

“What, now? This minute?”

  1. I think about that too, that most of the readers already know Jesus. And that’s okay too, to encourage one another. But I’m not so sure I’m encouraging too many to come to Him .. .this minute. 🙂 God bless you!

  2. Yes, I’m a bit conflicted about this too–once people know you’re a “Christian” blog, the non-believers often drop out; and the believers may get encouraged, but…I don’t know. God bless you and your family–love, sis Caddo
