Scripture:  Mark 1: 21-28

Sermon: “Teaching With Authority”

Sermon Theme:  Each of us needs to turn ourselves over to the grace of God so our lives can be exorcised and we can be made pure by God’s life changing love.  But to do this we must recognize the power of Jesus’ words and actions within our own lives for only then can we be empowered to share his message of healing with all those we meet.  If we can do this, if we open ourselves to Christ then not only will we be healed, we will become instruments of healing, transforming the world, working for the Kingdom, and living in unity and in peace.
