This week, we look at the apocalyptic story of the destruction of the Temple from Mark.  But at its heart, the scripture points out that in the midst of desolation and despair, there is the radiant good news of a new era of healing, liberation, and love.  God is turning the world upside down, serving all, restoring health, freeing captives, doing justice.  We are called to be a part of the movement!

Our scripture this week comes from the Book of Mark. It is the story of Jesus teaching about the hypocrisy of the scribes and the generosity of the poor widow. Our service will focus on the type of world we want to create together.

This Sunday, we will hear the story of Blind Bartimaeus. We will particularly focus on the instructions given to Bartimaeus: “Take heart; get up. . . .”  What does it mean to take heart? And what does it mean to “get up” if we are living inside prisons of our own making or prisons imposed on us by others? And ultimately, how do we regain our sight?
