Drama in Ministry

No, not that kind of drama … this kind of drama:

[the following is at the beginning of Paul’s 2nd Missionary Journey]

"Some time later Paul said to Barnabas, ‘Let us go back and visit the brothers in all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord and see how they are doing.”  Barnabas wanted to take John, also called Mark, with them,  but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work.  They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus,  but Paul chose Silas and left, commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord.  He went through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches." (Acts 15:36-41)

But the good news is that reconciliation and redemption of the relationship seems to have occurred:

"Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry." (2Tim. 4:11)
