SUN 21-OCT-2018 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 18 – "... but it is not so among you" – The disciples were simply not understanding what Jesus was on about, when he taught about servanthood and serving others in God's kingdom. He had to remind them, again, that greatness in God's kingdom is characterised by a radical form of service to the poorest and least privileged, not by the acquisition of power and authority over others. Sadly, in the centuries since the church's beginning, institutional churches have often brushed that teaching aside as irrelevant in the real world. As a current example, witness the spotlight of public scrutiny that has brought into the open the abuse of children left in church care. Jesus has taught us that such things ought not to take place in our midst.
Mark 10: 35-45
