The Pilgrim God: The Journey Begins in Earnest

Today's reading from Gospel of Luke 5:1-11, Jesus is by the Sea of Galilee watching fishermen coming to the shore line, their boats empty. Jesus suggests to them that they should push out further into the Sea of Galilee and drop their nets again. When they did so, the nets themselves began to break because the haul of fish was so heavy. Astonished by the catch, Jesus says to them: "Don't be afraid; from now on you will catch people." So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

In this miracle tale from Luke, Jesus has begun moving among us. The Pilgrim God moves among the people of God.
