Hedges And Weeds – A sermon

Here is this past Sunday’s sermon preached at KCRC for Sunday, June 2, 2013

It’s part of our ongoing study through the gospel of Mark – this week Mark 7:1-23.

We’ll be wondering about the place of tradition within the community of Christ-followers.

Does it belong?  If so, what are the limits that should be placed on it?  And, when do we get rid of it?
