Read Mark's Gospel over the Summer

One of the small groups at St Paul’s asked what they could think about over the Summer as they didn’t want to stop meeting together. My suggestion, which they were keen to take up, was to read through one of the Gospels a little each day and when they met together to look at anything that had particularly struck them and any questions they had.

So over the next few weeks they, and I, will be reading through Mark’s Gospel starting tomorrow. How about reading it with us and I may from time to time post some thoughts. If you have any questions as you read it let me know and I will try to reply here so that everyone can benefit.
