Why does God care who I sleep with?
Mark 10:6-9
Everybody cares who you sleep with! Its just that we disagree about what is sex and who gets to use it. Yet we all know that there is more to sex that skin on skin - perhaps we all know something more spiritual is being imaged - Jesus's love for his Church.

His Fathers Son
Mark 15
This is the gospel: One must live so one will go free. Jesus or Barabbas - his fathers son. The Father knew he would have to treat Jesus like Barabbas so he could treat us like his true son Jesus.

The Story of the World in a Meal

Jesus Looking for Fruit
Mark 11:12-22
What makes God mad? As Jesus clears the temple and judges the fig tree it's clear that fruitless religion is right up there. Jesus lifts the leaves and looks for the fruit of dependance on him, mission and intimacy with him.

One thing you lack...
Mark 10
When we weigh our money in one hand and Jesus in the other what choices do we make - not in theory but how it affects our bank statements? How much does Jesus self giving on the cross move you? A few pounds? 10%?

Mountain Tops
Mark 9
So often we put God in a box because to encounter him in worship is scary, so we create religious structures to keep him at a distance. We need to understand Jesus is with us by his spirit, and we are to be hungry to meet him in worship.

The Way of The Cross
Mark 8:22 (f)
Mark's use of Jesus' two stage healing of the blind man and Peter's confession of Jesus as Messiah illustrates that if you don't see Messiahship as the way of the cross then you will never be a disciple of Jesus.

The Disciples Centre

We are not passive but are being discipled by the world; if we are to be disciples of Jesus we have to move away from 'project self' and find our centre or identity in the sharing in relationship between Father, Son, Spirit.
