The author of the Gospel of Mark gave his book a working title in the first verse, saying “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” What follows is an action packed, eye-witness account of the words and deeds of Jesus which launched the global spread of the good news of God’s rescue mission for all people. The fast moving 16 chapters of Mark are easy to read, take a total of 75 minutes for an average adult reader, and are both a great introduction (for rookies) and a great reminder (for veteran followers) of the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ.
Each weekday over the course of the next four weeks, set aside 15 minutes to read the daily chapter or passage and then reflect upon what the Holy Spirit highlights for you. There are several ways to join us:

While we are starting this walk as a church on April 16, you can still join in after that date. Just start on Day 1 (ignore the date) and read through.
