Go Beyond Your Mind: Mark 1:14-20

Not long after dawn
Light breeze from the East
Water-waves turning
Old nets cast
Nets twisted
Another day

Hands torn from the night
A voice calls:
"Be with Me!" says He
New sounds
New lights
Glance off the dark waters

I say
I turn
The time has come
So sudden a time
Go beyond your mind

by Robert B. Ferguson

Gospel Mark 1:14-20
After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men and followed him.
