Walking Disciples

Today's Gospel of Mark reading focused upon the two sons of Zebedee talking among themselves as they were on their way, following Jesus, trying to figure out which of them was the best disciple. Imagine: having a conversation of who was the best disciple in the presence of none other than the Messiah! You have to simply love the disciples at times...which Jesus did!

That's the thing about walking on pilgrimage: when Jaqui (my friend from NZ) and I were walking to Santiago, or when I was walking with others on pilgrimage, we would begin a conversation that would be as meandering as the path itself. Walk and talk reflected each other on the pilgrims' way. And it was in the conversation itself that we would reveal more about who we are, even to complete strangers who soon became friends along the way, as we talked, became more vulnerable, intimate and transparent with one another. It is in the middle of such acts of transparency that we soon move beyond acquaintances to friendship!

Bien Camino,

Pilgrim peace,

Brett

Howdy Brett,

in the Episcopal Church, we read the story of Nicademus yesterday - not too and unlikely example of your message: the "acts of transparency" along the way, in our conversations.

I suppose some think he was chicken to go to Christ by night, but Jesus meets us where we are most vulnerable, and in such a way that allows us to expose our deepest heart places, our questions of longing to him, thank goodness.

Peace,
Michael
