We are about to begin reading the Final Act of Mark's Gospel. Jesus arrives in Jerusalem. He doesn't sneak in. He accentuates the turmoil and disturbs those in power by marching into the Holy City to cries of "Hosanna to the Son of David." But where is the Messiah of power? Where's God's grandeur? Maybe Jesus catches us thinking the wrong way about God and God's way, and this probably gives us a forever-warning to not grow complacent when it comes to being a follower of such a Saviour. Jesus' message will always challenge power and often our expectations of even God's power. Jesus speaks and stands for all not the few, even if the few cloak themselves with God-talk. It's action that matters as we discover when power asks about Jesus' credentials. He challenges us to follow in His path as people who think of the greater good, of the common good. I invite you to come and join us as we move on to read Mark 11. The stories may be familiar, but we can never grow too comfortable with its message. Come and read with us, Share your thoughts and reactions to the text. Let's work together to hear that truly God is still speaking.
