Growing Edges: A Carpenter Works with Wood and Nails

For Jesus, it was a great wager of faith and vocation. It meant leaving the security of home, family and job because his Father was calling him to a new job. He called the fishermen to become fishers of men. He himself, the carpenter, was called to take wood and nails to accomplish the real Exodus, the real defeat of evil. Calling God `Father' was not simply comfortable or reassuring. It contained the ultimate personal challenge.
