This week we continue in Mark, but the story is chopped up so much that we need to go back a bit to last week in order to get the whole story. That is the problem with the Lectionary. Sometimes it chops things up in a strange way. Luckily, we can always go back and clarify. Mark loves to make a point by sticking a seemingly unrelated text in the middle of two related texts. That is what we have here….
This week we have a quest preacher, but it is the Blessing of the Pets in honor of St. Francis, so stay tuned!
Yours in Christ,
