Happy Fall everyone!

I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but today it is absolutely gorgeous in Virginia Beach. Sunny, clear, a crisp 60 degrees. Amazingly, Halloween is just around the corner-grace2flogo-300x150– time sure flies, huh?

This week we will continue our study in the Gospel of Mark by reading Mark 6:14-29. In this passage we discover the fate of a character we met in the beginning of Mark’s Gospel (Mark1:1-11). John the Baptist was the one who prepared the way for the ministry of Jesus. He lived in the wilderness, preached a message of repentance, and baptized Jesus. But we discover that his life ends violently at the hands of a selfish, cruel ruler.

As we look at this story we wrestle with an age old question: How come bad stuff happens to good people. But even before that, we see another question– one Herod must answer (and so do we): Who is Jesus?

How do you answer that question? How do you think most people answer that question? I think a case could be made that the question “Who is Jesus?” is the most important question ever asked.

That’s what we’re going to talk about because you must answer that question before you can begin to handle why bad stuff happens to good people.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,
