While the other three gospels all start with some variant of birth story, the gospel of Mark requires us to wrestle with a wild man in the desert before we are allowed to see Jesus up close. And what does the wild man want? Like Isaiah, he tells us to prepare a way for the God of righteousness and justice to work. So Kris gets into Mark 1:1-8 and three ways we prepare for God to show up in our world: personally, locally, and regionally. With an axe and a shower scene thrown in for good measure.
