My sisters and brothers in Christ,
On this, the last Sunday in January, which happens to coincide with my last official weekend with you as rector of Caroline Church, we have,
I think, one of the more challenging passages in Mark's gospel.
Times of course were very different when Jesus was physically here on Earth, and when one was thought to have been possessed by
"unclean spirits" it likely held a different meaning than it does today.
That doesn't mean we're exempt from the need for Jesus's help in cleansing those parts of our lives that may separate us from him.
Are we often hyper-critical of others? Short tempered with our friends, children, spouse - or anyone who is seen as different from us?
Perhaps as we approach the Lenten season, we can think about the "unclean spirits" that interfere with our capacity to show kindness and love to others,
and ask Jesus to help us overcome these challenges.
