Wednesday Night Bible
Dessert. Coffee. Friends.I'm excited to announce a new format for adult ministry on Wednesday night at Highland! I like what author Jean Vanier had to say years ago about the blessing of Christian community: “In a world where there is so much violence, fear, insecurity, and hopelessness we can, with so many others, create a little place of peace where we love each other and where God lives.” Beginning Wednesday nights in November, I want to carve out a “little place of peace” for adults in our Auditorium. Round tables, desserts, coffee and such, will be a regular thing. We will spend some time taking a break from the week with fellowship, worship, prayer, and reflection on Scripture. (For November I will lead a series on “Special Events in John”). Open to everyone! Parents, I want to extend a special invitation to you! This gathering will be a great opportunity to take a “deep breath” from the week while your kids enjoy their Bible classes. Things get moving around 7:00 pm. ~ Ben Pickett
- The Gospel of MarkMark was the first to write down the story of the loved, hated, revered, despised and often misunderstood first century rabbi: Jesus of Nazareth. Mark wrote it in an attempt to answer the one question that Jesus himself asks throughout the book, "Who is this man?" For Mark, the people who were closest to Jesus were almost always the ones who couldn't really see Him, but the ones who were far away were the ones he could see the best. In a world where everyone seems to be a Christians the Gospel of Mark calls us to more than a civil religion. The Gospel of Mark calls us to be discipleship. In a world where everyone seems to think they know who Jesus was and what His movement is about, but strangely seem to have lives similar to people who have no intention of following him, maybe it's time to look again at the man who turned the world upside down. Because In the words of another Mark (Twain) "You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."
