Thinking and planning for 2021? The new year is fast approaching and this week's story from Mark's Gospel is so timely for us as we think about and plan for 2021. This week, Jesus is talking to a group of leaders, smart well-educated people about the root cause of a serious mistake that they are making, a mistake that we don't want to carry into 2021 that is for sure.
Wherever Jesus went, it seems crowds would gather around him. The crowds could be small, or they could be large but the folks that made up the crowd were all divided in their opinion about this Godman. So how did Jesus deal with the crowd? What was his MO? And what can learn from that for our own digital church? Well, this week, Matt unpacks why we changed the name to CROWD church, what the purpose of the church is and what some of the core principles are.
