This week, Mark takes us into one of Jesus' most challenging teachings. He wants his followers to think soberly about where all this life and world are headed. What can we be sure of, and what do we need to hold with an open hand? In Mark 13, we get glimpses of the seam between the temporal and the eternal and from Jesus himself, we are given amazing images of life beyond life. There is hope that something beautiful is coming, which means this life has meaning. Let's talk about what that means for us as people in step with a glorious God.
