Fastnacht

Members and friends of Good Shepherd enjoyed an evening of food and entertainment before Lent begins at Fastnacht. The theme of this year’s Fastnacht was GSL Goes to the Dog…Show. The evening started with a pot luck followed by entertainment and of course ended with delicious Fast Nachts. The entertainment included music and jokes by several talented members of Good Shepherd and a comedy skit by our members and pastors.

“Follow” – as you are.

In yesterday’ gospel story, we heard Jesus calling ordinary fishermen to follow him and become “fishers of people”.

In times of vocational transition, people may experience a lot of waiting, feelings of anxiety, and doubts about meeting a different set of standards and expectations.  For those who are wondering if they are good enough or have what it takes to follow a certain employer, school, or program, this gospel story might be an important reminder that Jesus doesn’t wait for people to apply to him. Jesus calls followers and then uses what they already know. We need not worry if our resumes or letters of recommendation will be good enough.  Jesus knows they are.
