Interesting, it is, that many times in the New Testament, some of the most profound teachings of Jesus came not when he was preaching or traveling, but when he was interrupted while he is preaching or traveling.  In the texts for Sunday, Saul, a.k.a. Paul, was on his way to Damascus.  Lightning flashed, and he was converted to Christianity.  The disciples were fishing and were having no luck.  The risen Jesus appeared, and they did not recognize him.  He told them where to fish.  Then, they recognized that it is Jesus.  In our world, God intervenes in our lives, very often during those moments when we least expect it, those moments when we are interrupted.  The sermon Sunday is entitled, "Expect the Unexpected."  We will consider the unexpected way the Risen Lord appears in our lives.
