John 21: 12-13 (NRSVA)

12 Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ Now none of the disciples dared to ask him, ‘Who are you?’ because they knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.

A long night on the water

The smell of breakfast cooking on the shore

and the sight of the risen Lord

who fed them with fish and bread

and with soul food too

calming their troubled hearts

soothing their weary minds

assuring them of their place

in the work of the kingdom


In our longing today

may we know the presence

of the risen Christ

meeting us after a long night

with all that we need

assuring us of our place

in the economy of God


and commissioning us

to kingdom work today.
