February 7th 2010

Readings for this week are:
Isaiah 6:1-8, [9-13]
Psalm 138
1 Corinthians 15:1-11
Luke 5:1-11

I'm fascinated by the contrast between the jaw-dropping vision Isaiah gets in the temple of God on a mighty throne, attendant creatures, smoke, etc... and the simple call the fishermen to follow Jesus (although it is accompanied by the miracle of the large catch of fish). I love the 'Miracle Maker' version of this story, which, if you haven't seen it, you can view at

I'm not sure I can post it as a link but I'll try!


Maybe it takes a miracle to convince us that the awesome God of Isaiah is come to us in Jesus of Nazareth - or maybe in the end that IS the ultimate miracle.

I won't be preaching this Sunday - it will be interesting to see what others make of these texts as we continue to travel from Epiphany to Lent.
