Posted by The 4pm Team on November 30, 2011

It's never easy to decide what to take with you on holiday; with limited baggage space, there are some items that don't make the cut, others that might possibly come in handy at some point just about get squeezed in somewhere.

Posted by RML Wednesday Mark on November 27, 2011

So far in Mark we have heard Jesus stressing the importance of listening to Him, and have seen something of the power of His word. In this week’s passage, we saw just how extraordinary that power is.
