John pointed the disciples towards Jesus as the one
they should follow. Remember the people in your life
who have pointed you in a new and life-giving
direction? Perhaps in some cases this may have
involved directing you away from your association
with them, e.g. leaving home, changing jobs, etc.
Accepting an invitation to ‘Come and see’ may be
part of exploring a new path in life. When has this
been so for you? Who issued you the invitation?
What benefits came to you from accepting the
invitation ?
‘Andrew did not keep the good news to himself but
also invited his brother to join him in following Jesus.
What is your experience of receiving, or giving, an
invitation to join in some worthwhile venture.?
Jesus looked at Peter and could see what he would
become. Who have been the people who have been
able to name for you your potential? For whom
have you been able to do this?
Church through prayer, discussion and community. Meeting
every Sunday at 7pm.
