Nina Balmaceda: Encounters in Mark 5

Guest preacher Nina Balmaceda invites us to rediscover a savior, teacher, and redeemer as he confronts issues of gender, race, violence, and oppression. She walks us through how three of Jesus’ encounters with neighbors in need display his radical care for vulnerable people, giving hope in a world of hopelessness. [Mark 5:6-9, Mark 5:27-30, Mark 5:39-41]

Dr. Balmaceda is president and CEO of Paz y Esperanza (Peace and Hope International), an organization that works in Latin America alongside individuals, families, and communities in poverty, so that they can live with dignity, free from violence and injustice.
