Questions for going deeper with the Scriptures for Sunday: April 29th
Mark 10:1-16 | Bonhoeffer’s notion of Costly Grace
If you've been to Frog Park in Oakland's Rockridge district this past week you've seen some major construction and trench-digging emerge. I go there for dog park breaks with my dog David during the day. Throughout the week I reflected upon the marks that appeared on the street, sidewalks, even the bushes indicating what was below. It was striking to realize how much is down there, and how ignorant I am of its presence - and exactly how important it all is to and in day to day life. I think this week's passage is like those markings, pointing to what lies below in our identities, our relationships and our day to day life.
