This is a Wednesday evening series that rotates each month through WORD (scriptures for the month), WISDOM (Rev. Baxter interviews a guest), WONDER (exploring spiritual practices), and WAY (the way we live out our faith, ministries of compassion and care). Tonight’s session is WORD, and the Rev. Brandon Baxter leads us through an introduction to the sections of Mark’s Gospel that will be the focus of worship services through October and to Advent. Brandon also invites us to download the guide for studying Mark (www.westendumc.org/marksofdiscipleship) and/or to join the Zoom studies on upcoming Thursday evenings (www.westendumc.org/marksofdiscipleship). In this session he gives background information about the Gospel of Mark. After that, Brandon leaves us with three questions to ponder as we read Mark that might lead to our transformation.
