26 September 21 – Sunday 26B (COCU 58B)

(Mark 9:38-50)
They sought to prevent
others using Jesus’ name
in acts of healing.

Stumbling blocks divide,
hurting ourselves and others;
and there is no peace.

More often than not
the stumbling blocks we make,
we make for ourselves.

How useful are we
if we are not all at peace
with one another?
