They threw down their nets

and they followed Him.

There was no time to

calculate profit or loss.

There was no time to

call home for a second opinion.

It seemed like absolute madness.

It seemed like death.

But it was a wise madness,

a necessary death.

The old faith dropped

and sank beneath waves.

The new faith walked on water,

beckoning on to Jerusalem

and the dry hills around.
