Today we honor the apostle Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, the son of Jona..
Together with their eighbor Zebedee and hs sons James and John they worked long seining nets off the north shore of the Sea of Galile.
Andrew, and his neighbor John gained permission from their fathers to go eighty miles south to where John the Baptist was baptizing people in the Jordan, There, the boys took to helping the Baptist by guiding old folks out into the Jordan to be baptized.
They were doing that, when Jesus passed by; and John the Baptist, recognizing him, called out, "There is the Lamb of God."
At that John and Andrew left what they had been doing, and like bashful country boys, they followed Jesus, keping their distance behind him. When Jesus turned, and asked them what they were looking for, Andrew asked, "Where are you staying?"
