Pastor’s Corner: Inauguration

January 20, 2021 I write these words with shallow breaths, almost holding my breath for what will occur tomorrow (as you read this: today, or perhaps yesterday) in Washington, DC.

What I’m Thinking: Omitting the Process

The Gospel writer Mark had an interesting habit of leaving out things we’d really like to know, like how Jesus persuaded his first disciples to follow him.
