Passage

Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16; Romans 4:13-25; Mark 8:31-38

The Rev. Dr. G. Malcolm Sinclair is calling his sermon “Lent as Old Visions and Young Nightmares.” “Narrow views of the range of culture and human possibility do much to make us small. Biblical stories are vast. Hearing them afresh stirs something very deep, and very dangerous.” The Bible readings are Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 (the sign of the covenant), Romans 4:13-25 (God’s promise realized through faith), and Mark 8:31-38 (Jesus foretells his death and resurrection).
