INTRODUCTION - Mark’s gospel makes clear how great was the press of the crowd, with its countless needs to be met, on Jesus and his disciples. Yet in today’s gospel Jesus advises his disciples to get away and rest, to take care of themselves. Sometimes we think that when others are in great need we shouldn't think of ourselves at all; but Jesus also honors the caregivers’ need. We are sent from Christ’s table to care for others and for ourselves.
Worship Servers: Each Sunday morning please meet in the workroom five minutes before the service begins for prayer with Pastor Darcy and the assisting minister.
Today’s altar flowers: Many openings available.
