Sunday, October 17, 2021: Hebrews 5:1-10 Mark 10:35-45 I started becoming aware, the other day, about how I have come to approach faith (and preaching) in a sort of two-fold way where on one hand we recognize something universal and relatable in our faith, while on the other hand, we also find something strange and […]
