We’re not starting at the beginning!
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
Julie Andrew’s character Maria, once told the von Trapp children that starting at the very beginning, (is a very good place to start), but we’re not doing that. On Sunday, as we start our journey through Mark’s Gospel we’re not starting at the beginning. The reason for this is because we are starting at the point where the whole thrust and direction of the story comes to a head for every hearer and reader of Mark’s account. If we grasp what Mark’s story means for us, then we are more likely to fully get hold of what this book might say to us.
So on Sunday, we’ll be turning to…… (you’ll have to wait and see).
