Jesus’ ‘Laughable’ Calm amidst Chaos Message #2 in the series “In the Middle of Chaos” Mark 5:34-43 St. Paul’s United Methodist Church of Elizabethtown September 26, 2021 Pastor John Marcott


Much of Jesus’ teaching and preaching took place amidst noisy, pressing, agitated crowds.  To avoid being stampeded he would preach from a boat (Mark 3:9) and once he even escaped being pushed off a cliff! (Luke 4:29) The swirl of chaotic noise and activity around him is a fitting metaphor for our own lives amidst various pressures, combative voices, threats and worries – both local and global.  Watching Jesus speak into chaos sheds great light on how we are to react to our ‘crowded’ lives. 


We will look at him in action:

  • September 12: “Jesus’ Questionable Concern in the Middle of Chaos” (Mark 5:21-34)
  • September 19: “Jesus’ Laughable Calm in the Middle of Chaos” (Mark 9:34-43)

In the middle of chaos, we aim to follow him by sharing his concern and experiencing his calm.
