Take Up Your Cross
Speaking, standing, staying, going, doing...it can all come with a high and heavy personal cost. We know that there are things that we are called to do and say in this world, but sometimes the personal risk seems to outweigh the call, and we are frozen.
This week, we explore that sense of self-preservation that sometimes prevents us from following God's call, and are encouraged, perhaps, to have the courage to go where God calls us, no matter what the risk..
This week's scripture readings are Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 and Mark 8:31-38.
