This past Sunday night, August 28th, the community of Northlake shared in a slightly different experience, listening to the entire gospel of Mark read, from beginning to end, in one sitting. As we’ll come to hear many times, and experience in classes and worship, Mark writes with a greater agenda than just relating facts about Jesus’ life. Instead, Mark builds a narrative, a story. But it’s not just a story to hear or entertain; Mark doesn’t intend for us to merely hear and move on about our daily tasks as if nothing has happened. Instead, Mark’s drama asks us to become participants. After enough contact with the gospel, we begin to see ourselves in Mark, and hear the call and demands of following Jesus. If you’d like to hear and experience Mark’s call again, feel free to listen to or download any of the files below from the reading this past Sunday. All three acts are available. If you’d rather read through the script used in the reading, you can download a PDF of that here.
