A Movement’s Inner Dynamic

June 14 & 21
One of my teachers, John J Vincent developed a whole years interactive programme using Mark’s gospel as the basis for getting involved in the local community. Chapter 4 which both these sermons are developed from he viewed as describing the Jesus Movement’s inner dynamic through both the parables which dash conventional expectations about how “successful” the Kingdom will be, and, in the storm on the lake story, how the fledgling disciple group experiences the pressures that are already building – “Have you still no faith?”
There is a neat little Youtube clip for the reading of the storm https://youtu.be/VgNL7mrtJ3c




Jesus is not nice!

This is about inclusion, sin, forgiveness and judgement. What is unforgivable?
Judgement in my book doesn’t have a lot to commend it.
