This daily reading will allow you to experience all the Gospel of Mark during Holy Week in about 15 min per day. It is an opportunity to dive deeply into Jesus story and center your faith in the current time. Our world whirls with chaos. Jesus calls us to enter deeply into the world but not to conform to it. Jesus says, “Peace,” and that is what we are given. Through Jesus’ power we become conduits for Jesus’ peace and love.

Mark 1.1 – 3.12

Q: Jump from Jerusalem in Jesus time to 2020: What do we celebrate as having the potential to save us? Celebrities, political figures, athletes, technology? What do we do when we are disappointed in our hopes?

Prayer: God, keep our attention on those things that nurture life and lead us to greater fellowship with you and with each other. Amen.
