John 21 – After the Resurrection, at the Sea of Galilee, the Apostles were together. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We also will come with you." This was one of the miracles of Easter. Why? Because these men, who had debated and grumbled about who would be the greatest, and who in most of the gospel texts were seen in small groups, now wanted to be together: "We also will come with you." WHether locked in the upper room out of fear, or fishing in the Sea of Galilee, they actually wanted to be together! This week of days we call Easter gives us pause to ask the Lord what relationships He wants to heal for us. Is there someone we should call or visit, or write? Is there someone against whom we hold a grudge or an unforgiven memory that still holds us captive? If the Lord's Resurrection can bring the Apostles together as never before, let's see what He wants to do with our relationships!
