Scripture Reading

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” And he said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They replied, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.”
When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus called them and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
-Mark 10: 35-45

Grace Calling

Grace is coming home – home to ourselves, home to one another, and home to our Creator God. It opens up a space for honesty, vulnerability, and true confession. We open up to God, ourselves, and those around us our pain, stress, worries, and fears of life. We authentically explore our own human frailty. Here you can find hope.

With this people you can find healing. In this moment, you can discover love. Encounter God. Experience Jesus. Feel the arms of grace around you. Know you are forgiven, and that God’s presence and providence encompasses all and surrounds you. Be embraced by grace.
