The Fellowship – Good News for October 28

28 10 2008

Luke 6: 12-16

Jesus went up to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.

When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 

The Daily Path: I’m fortunate to have been included in the first men’s spirituality group at my parish. We are small group who have grown to trust one another in an amazingly short period of time. We share our joys and challenges freely knowing that there is nothing but genuine interest and concern for all in the room. We’re not the Apostles but, like the first twelve, God has brought us together in a fellowship that I find remarkable. We don’t know how our group will evolve but I know the Spirit is at work within us and good things will come of it.
