June 3 - How Shall We Keep the Sabbath? 
Mark 2:23–3:6. Again he entered the syna-
gogue, and a man was there who had a
withered hand. They watched him to see
whether he would cure him on the sabbath,
so that they might accuse him. Image: The

June 10 - Who Is My Mother, Who Is My
Brother? Mark 3:20–35. A crowd sitting
around him said, "Your mother and your
brothers and sisters are outside, asking
for you." And he said, "Whoever does the
will of God is my brother and sister and
mother." Illustration: Crowd around

June 17 - Grow in the Kingdom of God.
Mark 4:26–34. "The kingdom of God is as
if someone would scatter seed on the
ground, and would sleep and rise night 
and day, and the seed would sprout and
grow, he does not know how." Image:

of the growing seed, from "Biblia ectypa :

June 24 - Peace! Be Still! Mark 4:35–41.
On that day, when evening had come,
he said to them, "Let us go across to the
other side." And leaving the crowd
behind, they took him with them in the
boat, just as he was. Other boats were
with him. A great windstorm arose, and
the waves beat into the boat. Painting:
