Scripture Notes – Sunday 20th June 2021

 Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?


Capernaum: Monastery of the Holy Apostles

(You may notice that Jesus is represented twice in the scene.)


The Gospel could hardly be more relevant. Storms and upheavals are everywhere — the church in Germany is a dramatic illustration. It would be tempting to jump in programmatic or managerial “responses” but that would be to miss the point. The starting point has to be elsewhere: the Good News, the person of Jesus, risen from the dead. Only then can we discern and take the necessary decisions, with freedom and courage. Mark’s teaching is for today.

The Readings
