keeping my safe distance

18 Jun

There is a still-producing spring on the Sea of Galilee that continues to pour fresh water into the lake. It is easy to think of this location as the place where Andrew and Peter were washing their nets, when Jesus asked them to join him. The lake is, thankfully, very high this year because of the good winter of lots of rain and the still melting snows of Mounter Hermon in the north. The higher water covering most of the walkable section of the shore, my still slightly bum knee, the rocks and uncertain surface, and not having on the right shoes all factored into to my decision not to draw too close to the place of the call. Seems like I can always come up with many good reasons for keeping my distance!
