Exorcising unclean spirits and QAnon

(I preached this sermon on Sunday, January 31, 2021 in response to Mark 1:21–28. You can find the full service, including the sermon, on the church website).

What do you think about this Gospel reading today? What do you make out of it? When you think about Jesus performing an exorcism in a synagogue, does that resonate with you? Does it connect at all with you? Does it connect with what we experience in our lives today? On the surface, it probably doesn’t. How often have you witnessed the casting out of an unclean spirit in church? Or anywhere else for that matter…
