When we see the stories and parables in the New Testament through a metaphorical lens, we can apply lessons to our own lives, in our own time. In the past, I’ve read that passage and wondered how the fisherman could just walk away from their lives and follow Jesus. The story about the guys dropping their nets and following Jesus sounds a bit far-fetched. But the monk who touched Rev. Bourgeault had a very different take on the story, one that made it real for the author…and for me.
