Our series through the Gospel of Mark is coming to a close! Along our journey, we have been challenged by the Way of Jesus to live as a kingdom people. This is no easy task and there are still many questions and conversations to be had as we follow Jesus together. So we would like to create some space for questions and participation on Sunday, June 17th. Has there been anything you have been struggling to repsond to from the Gospel of Mark? Or perhaps there has been a difficult passage for you to understand? You are probably not alone, so please submit your questions and lets get the conversation started.
