Disciples and Stewards
Jo-Ann A. Brant
Unit 1. Imitating Jesus. Discipleship in Mark is often described as the way of the cross because of the repeated emphasis on following Jesus on the way to Jerusalem and the command to take up one’s cross and follow Jesus (Mark 8:34). As we commemorate Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem, we give our attention to various aspects of discipleship that are made real in Mark’s gospel.
Unit 2. Stewards of God’s Creation. Creation care has become a prominent topic of discussion in Christian congregations and seminaries during the last several decades. While there is disagreement about human responsibility for climate change and to what extent we should limit human activity to pre-serve endangered species and habitats, Scripture makes clear that God takes pleasure in creation and that our role as stewards requires that we appreciate creation and take our responsibility as stewards seriously.
