Coming This Sunday

December 4: The Gospel of Mark begins like a Starter's pistol: The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ. No angelic announcement of birth. No idyllic Bethlehem. Jesus appears a grown man and bounds from Galilee to be baptized. What proceeds in sixteen chapters is described in verse one. Truth is that the good news of Jesus Christ is always a beginning. To be at the starting line is find that we are not prisoners of the past. Join me on the second Sunday of Advent prepared to experience the good news.
