Life can seem hectic at times. We move from one thing to the next, to the next, to the next with little to no time to catch a breath or regroup. We often find ourselves having to pivot in order to meet the demands of each moment as it feels as if everything needs to happen—immediately!
As we open the pages of Mark’s Gospel we are hit with a sense of immediacy; as soon as one event ends another begins. There is no doubt that Jesus is on the move! In one moment Jesus is healing and casting out demons and in the next He’s performing miracles and teaching about the Kingdom of God – going from place, to place, to place.
Yet this rapid pace slows down as Mark describes the events surrounding Jesus’ death and crucifixion.
In our Reflections on Mark Series we’re going to be slowing things down a bit to see what we can glean from this fast paced Gospel.
