Fifth Sunday After the Epiphany, Year C
Scripture: Luke 5:1-11
This week, Jesus has a boat as a pulpit. Amid the crowd are two exhausted fishermen who had worked all night long without catching anything. Casting nets, pulling in empty nets, all night long. Jesus uses these two men as his “sermon illustration.” Jesus tells them to let down their nets for a catch. They muster up the courage to try yet again. They take the risk and find abundance.
