Monday Sermon, The Rev. Matthew A. Welsch: "John is in Prison and Jesus is Calling"
“We stand with Simon, Andrew, James, and John on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and the news is all around us: John is in prison and Jesus is calling.” There are dark days behind us as a nation and hard days of work ahead. “We can’t go back to business as usual," preaches the Rev. Matthew A. Welsch. "Last week’s storming of the Capitol was a painful reminder of who we have been, but also an invitation to be who God calls us to be." If you’re not surprised with all you see happening around you, what more will it take for you to drop your nets and follow God’s call for justice and mercy? The readings are Hebrews 1:1–6 and Mark 1:14–20.
