Passage

Matthew 4: 12-23 Jesus begins his public ministry by calling two sets of brothers to follow him
Every empire has a shelf life

Jesus' life began in the violent regime of Herod the Great, who murdered scores of innocent children because he feared a threat to his throne from the newborn king.

Jesus' call to Simon, Andrew, James & John was appealing enough to cause them all to abandon livelihoood, family, and home and follow him on his way.

The Women's March on Washington causes us to pause and wonder: What speaks to you deeply enough to cause you to take action? Was Jesus' call to these fishermen like that?
