Rector’s Reflection

What’s the best news you’ve ever heard? Was it news of an engagement, a birth or the end of war? When we look into the Bible we read of good news. It is found in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke & John). The word ‘gospel’ means ‘good news’ and we soon see why. The writer Mark began his Gospel with these words:

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.                 (Mark 1:1)

Mark starts his biography of Jesus with this astonishing claim that Jesus is God’s chosen King and only Son. This really is good news because it tells us that we can know what God is like by looking at the person of Jesus Christ. What unfolds in Mark’s Gospel is a compelling account of a remarkable life that seems to back up that claim at every point.

I often meet people who have never taken the time to read a Gospel and consider the claims of Christianity for themselves. So can I invite you to read Mark’s Gospel? It’s the shortest of the four – it will not take you long to read. It will take you to the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.

Can I also invite you to join us this autumn as we look into Mark’s Gospel? Join us on Sundays @ 11am as we begin a new Sermon Series in Mark’s Gospel: Following The King. Join us midweek as we begin Christianity Explored which will give you time and space to discover the best news you’ve ever heard. Over seven interactive sessions, explore Mark’s Gospel 2to find out who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

I look forward to sharing with you the best news I’ve ever heard!
