Sunday 17th May 2020

A service of Morning Prayer in the Celtic tradition led by Dick Quinby with a talk by Janice Robinson. The service is available online from 10.00am on Sunday  17 May.

To participate in the service it will be helpful to have to hand:
– the Service Sheet HERE – so that we can join together in words and prayers
– a Bible, marking Psalm 103:1-5 so we can join together in reading the psalm
– please also read Mark 5:21-43 as preparation for Janice’s talk
– and if you wish,  a candle for lighting at the start of the service.

Today’s talk is the third in our teaching series: Jesus Scandals.
Scandal followed Jesus everywhere he went.  His teaching, his miracles, his unconditional love for all people – everything he did and said subverted and threatened the social and religious establishment of his day.  Looking at key episodes of Christ’s ministry according to St Mark, we will discover how the scandalous Jesus challenged the norm, and still does, and why he is good news for our world today.
