Today, in the Gospel, Jesus, too, seeks to take his little group away to a quiet place and rest, only to find when their boat puts in to shore that a crowd of people are already there before them and are waiting for them. The planned holiday must now give way to the needs of this hungry people, who are hungry for more of what Jesus has to offer them. The sight of these people has a profound effect on Jesus. He is deeply moved by what he sees – people who seem lost and directionless, people who seem vulnerable to every wind that blows. Mark, writing this Gospel story, says the people were like sheep without a shepherd. Shepherds, as we know, provide leadership and good guidance for sheep, finding new pastures for them and keeping guard over them in the watches of the night, so that predators may not attack and kill them.
We are sorry but at the moment we are having problems with our internet connection.
We are trying to get this sorted out as soon as possible, and will then resume our livestream.
