In Mark 6, Jesus comes to his hometown not simply for a family visit, but to bring a message for all to hear. Questions, such as, “How will his message be received? How will he be received?” loom heavy over Jesus’ visit. These questions still loom heavy in our day. How does our own culture and society receive the message of Jesus? How well do we do at receiving him into our presence? Though Jesus is rejected by his own townspeople, his mission and his message will not be stopped, as it continues to enter our lives even to this day.
