Today in our Gospel reading from Mark 9 we hear how the disciples try to stop someone from doing deeds in the name of Christ, but Jesus helps them to understand that those who do things in the name of Christ are a blessing. Today we are reminded that, like the Trinity, the church can have its distinct parts yet still be one as together it seeks to Make Christ Known. May we continue to find ways to work together for the sake of the Gospel, all the while being blessed by our diversity in the midst of our unity.

Mark 9:38-50

Blessed by Diversity in the Midst of Unity
