Check out Second Presbyterian Church!
Read along with Mark 1:29-39.
Included in this podcast:
1. Anthem of the day: "Go, and Tell John" (Words and music by Lloyd Pfautsch)
2. Scripture reading
The news of late has been filled with brutality, cruelty, and violence: the serial sexual abuse of over 160 young, female gymnasts by a team doctor; the torture of 13 children by their own parents; another school shooting (not so far from here) that has left students dead and lives shattered.[i]
Once again, the crowds are clamoring at the door, crying out for healing and help. Where is Jesus, they are asking us just like they asked the disciples. (pause)
Where is Jesus?
Jesus is closest to those who need him the most.
