Hello and Happy Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it),
This past week was our last Markan reading for a while, as we will some be moving into Advent and a new church year. This is the apocalyptic section of Mark, and this reading has caused many people a lot of strife over the years. Jesus seems to offer signs of the end of the world, but as far as signs go, t hey aren’t very clear and later He says that no one can know the hour. So, what is this story really about if it isn’t about “the end?”
Note: I have some coughing fits during the sermon. The dry air from the church boiler was getting to me. I did not have time to edit it out (what with the baby and holiday), so think of it as if you are really there!
Thanks for stopping by!
