Passage

Mark 9:38-50 Jesus teaches his disciples about stumbling blocks
They are not against us

This sermon is based on a meditation by Gloria Jay Evans entitled, "The Wall." We build walls to separate ourselves from others; our spiritual work is to dismantle these walls and begin to see other people as our partners. Jesus helps us see that people are not against us. Note: The battery on the microphone recording the gospel and sermon went dead about one minute into this recording. If you listen past the reading of the gospel and dismissal of the children to Word for Children, a new microphone records the sermon in its entirety at full volume.
