The scriptures read are Zephaniah 1, Psalm 130 and Mark 8.
Zephaniah 1. Zephaniah is the great grandson of King Hezekiah. And despite the reforms of current King Josiah, not everyone has abandoned their pagan ways. So Judgment Day is coming.
Psalm 130. This is based on a hymn by Marin Luther which in turn is based on Psalm 130. And it is great. Click here to hear.
