The Second Sunday in Lent - Year B
February 25th, 2024
While in Mark, Jesus tells his followers to remain quiet about so much, he openly declares his teachings about the cross to the crowds. Hiding in plain sight is God’s confrontation in Christ with the evils of this world, and an abiding witness to the promise of a new understanding, a new way, a new world. With gratitude this week to the work of the Rev. John Kirkley.

The Second Sunday after the Epiphany - Year B
January 14th, 2024
Samuel, Nathanael, and Martin Luther King, Jr., are all called by a God who does not offer a roadmap, a strategic plan, or even a clear sense of where things are ultimately heading. Instead, the call comes at a surprising or difficult moment and only is an invitation to follow: to put one foot in front of the other -- faithfully.
Mark’s breathless narrative opens with another kind of creation out of the waters of chaos: this time, Jesus being drawn up as God’s beloved child out of baptism in the Jordan. The power of water illustrates the power of the Spirit’s transformation: love and new life.
