Pastor Message for the week:
What prompted the disciples’ conversation? Why were they arguing about who among them was the greatest? The disciples, at this point in the narrative, had spent significant time with Jesus and with one another. Their relationships were formed; they knew each other’s personality. Some, like at the Mount of Transfiguration, had particular and special experiences with Jesus that they could claim as their own. Perhaps, they all did. As we read the gospel texts, we receive access to only a fraction of their interactions and encounters. But, this was a question among them, “who was the greatest.”
This week again, we will look into the relationship Jesus had with his disciples as we continue the exploration of the Gospel of Mark.
The church is open for Sunday Worship services at 10:30 am and will be following all the established protocols to keep our community safe during this time of worship together.
