Meeting Jesus in the Ordinary

Jesus and the Disciples have breakfast together on the beach. In the darkness they experience scarcity, catching no fish. But in the morning light, they see Jesus and are blessed with abundance. "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it." (John 1:5).

Scripture References: John 21:1-14

From Series: "Now What?"

The tomb is empty, he is risen. But those who know and love Jesus are still primarily scared and confused. And they’re wondering, “now what?” The world has turned upside down, life has conquered death and yet there is still so much that suggests otherwise. For a community of faith like ours, in a time such as this, we can find ourselves asking the same thing, “now what?” How do we respond in a time of uncertainty? Which direction should we go? What plans should we make? If we are to have confidence in God, why do so many questions remain? For the eight weeks after Easter, we leave the Narrative Lectionary behind and consider a series of Gospel texts that recount how a risen Jesus restores the community of believers to become the church for tomorrow.
