[Andrew is not a warrior saint, nor is he particularly concerned with the petty dealings of Hell and heathens. He is neither defensive nor terrified when the beast shows up at the warehouse at five in the morning. If anything, he is a little irritated -- he has a dozen restaurants expecting their Monday morning seafood deliveries by seven, and the hound keeps getting under his feet while he tries to load a truck. He doesn't pause in his work while the hell-beast sniffs at him, though he does begin reciting Scripture to counter the fear prickling down his spine (he is a saint, not an idiot; of course he is afraid of the hellhound). Whatever the thing is looking for, it apparently doesn't smell like fish and the divine flame of the Holy Spirit; the beast slinks away as suddenly as it showed up, and Andrew finishes his deliveries in peace.]

"He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?" " -Mark 4:40 (or my memory, also around age 40)
Have faith, my family. Consider the things we've faced in our lifetimes of serving Him. What is there to fear from a hound of hell, when we have faced martyrdom, battle, and nonbelievers?

It's a very different kind of thing, selling fish instead of catching it. But the old bones aren't what they used to be, and it's much easier on my back to sling boxes than it was hauling nets and sorting the catch. And I don't smell quite so strongly of fish, which I'm almost positive my students appreciate. It's rather difficult to have a serious discussion about Scripture when all fifteen of them are crowding the back three rows, leaving the first two empty.
Now then. Dare I even ask if anyone knows what my brothers have been up to lately?
