This coming Sunday we have the Family Keane leading our morning worship. So I know we can all expect tough questions from question master Sally! Along with of course, fab sausages and other delicious breakfast items.
The reading this week is Mark 8:31-38 and as you can expect in Lent, it will draw us into some difficult questions.
Last week’s service certainly did with some surprising results! He moves in mysterious ways and all that!
The songs this week are soooo beautiful, especially a new one to me ‘Every Promise’ I have totally fallen in love with it. So do listen to it so that we all can sing it with some gusto on Sunday.
Mark 8:31-38 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”
34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel,[a] will save it. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words[b] in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
…and as for what those questions will be, you’ll have to come to find out!
