Are they a good signing?
Under normal circumstances the football transfer window would have been closed weeks ago. Yet, this year is not normal. Each morning there is a new story; a new connection between player and club; a new twist in the story.
As a long-term Arsenal fan, I’m particularly keen to know what’s going on this summer. Over the last few years we’ve dropped off the pace and have begun to slide down the premier league table. This summer has been billed a time to rebuild and there has been some exciting news, but we’ll have to wait and see.
If you’re a football fan, what do you do when a player is linked with or signs for your club? I find that I turn to that popular search engine on the web. The result is pages of facts, figures and opinions. All you need to know to discover if this is a good signing or not.
If you wanted to know whether Jesus was someone worth following, how would you find that out? You could put his name into an internet search and trawl through all the results. I did that and it returned almost 1 billion pages. A lot of people have written about him and there are lots of opinions out there.
A simpler way would be to turn to the Bible and find out about Jesus at source. In this article I want to invite you to do that. From this month we’re going to be doing a series of short videos walking step by step through Mark’s Gospel.
Mark is a Bible book that introduces us to Jesus and shows us who he is and why he’s so important in our lives. The plan is to take a section each week and think about what it’s saying to us today.
If you want to join us on this journey the videos will be available on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel. If you want a copy of Mark’s Gospel to use please let us know and we’ll be happy to send you one.
Praying you all keep safe and well.
