October 7, 2018 – Jonathan chute “Insiders”
In our gospel the disciples report to Jesus that they found someone performing healings in his name. They tell him that they tried to put a stop to it, since the man wasn’t one of them. But Jesus says that good deeds done in his name are never out of place. It does not matter who does them. Being a follower of Jesus is not an exclusive club. Anyone who acts with compassion is a member of this family. The text for Jonathan’s sermon, “Insiders”, is Mark 9:38-41.
