Come with Me

The end of the first chapter of John’s Gospel recounts how Jesus gathered his first disciples near the place where John the Baptizer was working. How did he connect with them? What did they think of him? Why did they go with him? We invite you to come with us during the coming year as we follow Jesus through the Gospels.
