Season after Pentecost, Ordinary Time, Proper 21, Year B
Scripture: Mark 9:38-50
Jesus continues to teach, while gently holding a small child on his lap. “Whoever is not against us is for us.” Then, do what you have to do to make sure you place no stumbling block before one of these little ones. If your foot causes you to stumble – cut it off! Hyperbole, perhaps, but the point is clear: pay attention. We are called to be salty people and at peace with one another.
