"Throughout most of this year, we will be reading our way through the Gospel of Mark on Sundays.  Mark is the shortest of the four gospels, and was the first to be written. Luke and Matthew also borrow extensively from Mark.  

Mark writes with a sense of immediacy and is keenly aware of brewing conflict.  It is a highly “active” gospel.  Jesus doesn’t just “say” things: He “sits down, opens his mouth, and says” things! This is hard to tell on Sundays when we read only “snippets” of the text. The truth is there’s nothing like hearing the entire gospel in one go.  

So, please join us on Zoom as we watch a stunning rendition of the whole gospel by the noted actor Max McLean. McLean won the 2009 Jeff Award for best solo performance in Chicago theatre.  You won’t be sorry!"
