Third Sunday of Easter

 

Today on this third Sunday of the Easter season, we have two different stories about God’s call coming into peoples’ lives, Peter’s and Paul’s. And although their stories are very different and although their callings are somewhat different, we see that they both received their call in the presence of Jesus. Jesus appears to Peter after his resurrection and calls him into the role of a shepherd for the sheep. And Jesus appears to Paul and calls him into the role of an evangelist to the Gentiles. What can these two different stories teach we modern disciples who are also here today gathered in the presence of the risen Christ to hear this word which invites us out of our routines and into God’s mission for the world.
