In this passage, Jesu...

Satisfied in Jesus

Dear CrossPointe,This week we'll look at the well-known account of Jesus feeding the five thousand in Mark 6:30-44. The miracle itself is obviously quite a scene: Jesus takes just five loaves and two fish and multiplies it to satisfy the hungry stomachs of thousands.But what makes it all the more striking is that it follows Mark's account of the murderous and lustful banqu...

Jesus Sends

Happy New Year!In Mark 6:7-13, Jesus remarkably sends out what still seems to be a very unprepared group of twelve on a mission. Earlier in Mark's gospel Jesus called these men so that they might be with him and that he might send them out to proclaim the gospel. Likewise, to be a Christian is to be on mission. Our plan this Sunday is to think deeply about how we are calle...
