Coming together in faith, moving forward in love

In this eight-week sermon series we want to consider what unites us as people of faith and how that is formed by what Jesus taught and how he lived.

Mark 10:2-16

The main issue in this passage is divorce. Christ’s teaching here has guided the church for many centuries. What do you think about how Jesus re-interpreted a clear direction from scripture (Deuteronomy 24:1-4) allowing for divorce? Jesus did this by pointing to God’s original intention for marriage. What are other examples of re-interpretation of scripture in the New Testament (e.g., Mark 7:14-23)? How about in the past fifty years in the church (e.g., women’s ordination, allowing divorced people to re-marry)? How has the Spirit brought changes to you in what you believe? How has that been a source of grace for you? For others?
