The Doing Comes From the Being
At a young age, Pastor Kate wrestled with what it meant to be a member of her family. She thought it might be because she fished with them.
It’s tempting to think Jesus chose the first four disciples because they fished— that he wanted them to follow him because of what they did. Except maybe that’s not entirely accurate.
The being does not come from the doing. Instead, the doing comes from the being. Pastor Kate explores this notion in relation to Jesus’ call that each of us follow him.
