Through history, people have debated the nature of greatness. Jesus didn’t settle the argument – it rages still – but it’s clear where he stood. Greatness is service of neighbor. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the ninth chapter of Mark’s Gospel (Mark 9:30-37). Now in last week’s gospel lesson, Jesus for the first time […]

What I’m Thinking: Failure

Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the eighth chapter of Mark’s Gospel (Mark 8:27-38). The section begins with a lot of promise. Jesus asked his disciples who people thought that he was.
