The Beheading Of John The Baptist… Why Is This In The Bible? (Mark 6:14-29)

Check out the story in Mark 6:14-29.  This week we started with a crazy poem called “HEADLINE” that retells this horrible story!  (See what I did there?)

The blackboard was used a lot for this sermon so you miss the visuals in the sound recording.  But you’ll work it out!

Where Is God’s Line? Mark 3:22-28

This week we explore Mark 3:20-29 and a common big question: What is the sin against the Spirit?  And how do I avoid it?  Either listen to the Sunday sermon, or watch the visual version (a rough copy) as it might be hard to follow without pictures!

This is a complex area with many side-paths, so not everything can be said in a short sermon.  If you want more info I recommend the following reading and discussion material…

Gather – invite someone over, make a stranger a friend, break isolation!

Relate – turn off the TV, sit together at a table, face each other, listen: change lives!

Accept – let your table be a place where differences are accepted and people are not judged

Consecrate – bless, say thanks, don’t be ashamed to acknowledge the giver!
