Over at The Christian Leadership Center, Nick Perrin (Wheaton College) has a good little article on preaching the Gospel of Mark.
Mark tells us about this new movement, this new messiah, and this new mission. This has all kinds of implications for how we live, the one we live for, and the cause for which we live. Perhaps the most important thing to remember in preaching Mark is that this gospel really is not an action movie of successive high-impact scenes. Rather it is a tapestry of many threads. If you find the main threads, you are better poised to share Mark’s beauty with others. Such beauty was meant to be not merely impressive but transforming.
