Together in Faith: Jesus said to Simon and his brother Andrew, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. Mark 1:17-18
A person once asked a friend, “When did you decide to follow Jesus?” And the friend answered, “This morning!” The decision to live the Christian life is ratified by the decisions we make each and every day. The decision to reach out in love and respect to our world and our sisters and brothers is a daily choice.
