You might be surprised to learn that the first mention of the word “father” in the Gospel of Mark is not a reference to God, nor does it have anything to do with Jesus’ identity as God’s Son.
Rather, the first “father” in Mark refers to a man who doesn’t have a single word of dialogue in the entire book, yet his name will echo throughout the stories of his sons’ impressive impact.

And as we continue our series hearing about the disciples Jesus made so that we can fulfill the commission that he gave, this week we will linger on the shore where fatherhood meets discipleship and ask the question: When is it good to be left behind in the boat?
