Preaching Moment 327: Otis Moss III on Preaching Mark 5

Otis Moss III discusses how to approach Mark 5 “from the underground up” when preaching, raising existential, theological and biblical questions.

“Who is this man? What is he experiencing? We know that he is homeless, he’s not in school, he’s not with his family. You raise those questions. He has chains around his arms and his legs — is that talking about mass incarceration? Are there some issues around his mental health? … There are a lot of Mark 5 people in our congregations,” says Moss.
