5th Sunday after Epiphany

Passage: Mark 6:1-29
Service Type:

Now the scene shifts in geographical location and theme.  Jesus leaves his hometown and then sends the disciples out to teach, preach, and heal in his name.  Here, Jesus shifts responsibility for ministry to his disciples knowing that a genuine call to ministry always calls us to that for which we are not adequately prepared.  Jesus knows that he will not always be physically present as the death of John the Baptizer foreshadows.
