October 17, 2021 – 21st Sunday after Pentecost worship service

In today’s gospel from Mark, the picture of Jesus’ power in the gospels is not one of king but of servant Lord. We do not see Jesus seated on a throne, issuing orders, and being served, but as an unassuming man, living among people, listening to their needs, and sharing God’s healing merch with them. Jesus calls his followers to share in his power and glory by being at his left and right as he stoops to wash feet, as he touches those considered uncle, as he is mocked by worldly powers. This is where true glory and power are found.
