Control or Embrace?  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 9: 38–48
Summary: In response to the attempt by his disciples to stop a man from casting out demons in his name, Jesus teaches the necessity of embracing and empowering outsiders to the community to become insiders.

A Follower Who Doesn’t Follow  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 9: 38–50
Mark 9: 38–48 for LFM
Summary: In trying to decide how to respond to Jesus’ acts for our salvation, we learn from the “unchurched” exorcist that fighting evil forms part of discipleship. Jesus affirms any effort to fight evil, but pushes disciples to pursue the values of the kingdom, even at risk. The joy of the kingdom will compensate for any sacrifice we make.
