Gone Fishing

I preached on John 21 last week at church. It's one of them interesting texts with a lot of depth that can easily be missed. Part of my angle was the response of the disciples to what had happened on the Easter Sunday morning. confusion, bewilderment, excitment and fear coupled with a need to explore what this event meant philosophicaly and theologicaly.
There response was not to set up a Synod where they could debate the issues but to do what most normal blokes would do - they went fishing....

Next week General Synod for the Anglican church in Aotearoa and Polynesia takes place, over the course of a week they will debate, corcuss (my spellchecker tells me it should be spelt carcuss...go figure)and make some interesting decisions that i am sure we will all be grateful for. However i can't help thinking maybe they should just go fishing too...
