Mark: Journey to the Cross Week 10
Mark 14:1-9 ESV
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our service this Sunday 9th June 2023. No matter where you live or whenever you find this webpage you are welcome to join with our church family as we worship God together.
We have reached Week 10 in our series on the second half of Mark’s gospel. In Mark 14:3-9, we fing the account of a woman who breaks open a jar of very expensive perfume and pours it over Jesus’ head and feet, she then wipes his feet with her hair. Now 300 Denarii doesn’t sound like much for the value of the perfume, but this represents a years wages to those who knew about this Spikenard. In today’s money with average wages up around $100,000 per year, this puts a whole new perspective on this extraordinary act of worship, love, and devotion. To get the whole story you will need to watch the video.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
