This coming Sunday, July 11, 2021, I plan to preach on Mark 6:14-29. It will be a sermon about the persistent advance of the Reign of God in the face of opposition and adversity. But, before I read the scripture, I plan to introduce the passage by noting that “King” Herod had cheated on his wife with his brother’s wife, then divorced his wife and married his brother’s wife. Herod’s wife and her daughter were both named Herodias. You can come to hear about the tenacious advance of the Kingdom of God or you can come to hear about a set of family dynamics that will definitely make you feel better about your own. Either way we’ll be happy to see you.
