    Your past, your problem or perception should never hinder you from telling the story of God loves and Jesus’ saving power.

    “You Tell the Story” Mark 16:1-8 “…And they said nothing to anyone…” I call the Markian version of the gospel the realist version. Mark appears to recognize the frailty of the human spirit.

Two primary, overarching views of human origins exist. The first sees the universe and everything in it as a product of purely ...read more
