“I’m going fishing,” Simon Peter said.John 21:3
The disciples had been through a whirlwind in the previous days living through their leader being arrested, beaten, crucified, buried, only to be resurrected and crash their “What just happened…” party.
Everything had become abnormal and fishing sounded like a good “normal” idea.
I read this passage differently the last time according to my notes. I thought this little exercise in getting back to normal was somehow sinful on behalf of the disciples.
All of the change these past few weeks has given me time to do things I used to do that brought me much joy: singing, playing guitar, watching movies with my family, reading, etc. I just hope I never forget to go fishing in the future when things finally get “back to normal.”
