Today's scripture is the halfway point in the Gospel of Mark. Pastor Andrea Fluegel and Rachel Strong discuss how the disciples must move from passive recipients to active participants. Continuing on this journey, as they literally head toward Jerusalem and the Cross, means risk and a different kind of fellowship. The disciples are also learning the true identity of Jesus and what it means when the Kingdom of God breaks into this world and God's love and forgiveness are here.
