B44: The Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2015)

Brian McLaren

Brian McLaren, speaker, activist, and bestselling author of More Ready Than You Realize, We Make the Road by Walking, The Great Spiritual Migration, and, most recently, Faith After Doubt, preaches on Mark 9:38-50. McLaren begins by explaining the expansion of people from South Africa. Then he states, “One of the big questions people are asking today is: ‘Is that all religion is–a tribal marker’?” In today’s passage, Jesus urges us to move past tribal religion to the religion of God’s kingdom. Listen as McLaren explains how to make this shift.
