Next Sunday: A Values Adjustment (Mark 10:17-31)
January 7th – In the new year, what kind of value system will we live by? In the story of the rich young man, we find that values of the first century were not that different than the values of the 21st century. Jesus, on the other hand, was preaching a different set of values for his followers, those who would truly be part of God’s kingdom. Jesus’ values are counter-values, “upside down” values. We’ll listen in as Jesus tries to help this man, and us, with a “values” adjustment.
