The Beginning of the Good News – February 21, 2021

Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner Preaching

Scripture: Mark 1: 1-20

Scholar and pastor Eugene Peterson caught Mark’s urgency: “Mark wastes no time in getting down to business—a single-sentence introduction…. There’s an air of breathless excitement in nearly every sentence he writes. The sooner we get the message, the better off we’ll be, for the message is good, incredibly good: God is here, and he’s on our side…. Mark, understandably, is in a hurry to tell us what happened in the…life, death, and resurrection of Jesus—the Event that reveals the truth of God to us, so that we can live in reality and not illusion.”
