Throughout October, Jennifer and I have been preaching through the gospel lection that takes us through the tenth chapter of Mark. My sermon on Mark 10:46-52, entitled "Calling Out in the Dark," concluded this series. I tried something new (for me) with my sermon yesterday, opting to write the entire sermon in the voice of Bartimaeus himself. While I can't say whether or not it was particularly effective, I can definitely say that I had a lot of fun in its creation. Alas, I didn't foresee any easy way to do the recap in that same style, so I'm simply recapping the major points of the sermon as I normally would. The scripture text follows the video below.
Mark 10:46-52 (NRSV)
