From the Pastor's Desk

     “Help! I need somebody. Help! Not just anybody. Help! You know I need someone. Help!”            
     In 1965, those words introduced the Beatles hit song, “Help!” It was understood that the one being asked to offer assistance, was the listener, that is, You. Very early in our Lord’s ministry, Jesus realized that the scope of His Father’s plans would require more than He could do alone. He needed help. His first act was to call four fishermen.            
     Even today, some fishermen work by contract. The work is strenuous and dangerous. In good weather and in bad, working on the sea calls for a person to be ready to adapt to any situation.              
     Fishermen know how to cast their nets and wait patiently for a response. At times, fishermen cast their nets repeatedly until finally, they have success. They must also know how to shift their boats when the weather changes and not be afraid to set out on deep water. Fishermen work together, trusting in their tools and in each other. They possess some valiant qualities.
