For further reflection and study....
      Read the Scripture for today Mark 10: 35-45 (NRSV)

35 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.” 36 And he said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” 37 And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” 38 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?” 39 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; 40 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.”

41 When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. 42 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. 43 But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

   Questions to consider: 

  • St. Anselm believed the source of suffering is within the deepest cavity of the human spirit. What do you think Anselm meant & do you think it’s true?

  • How has the power of the Cross changed your life?

Reach out to a member and discuss these questions if you can!

We encourage you to continue to hold one another in prayer during our time apart. Please email Pastor Liz at or Pastor Matt at with your prayer concerns. Please email Diane at if you would like someone to be added to the prayer list.
