From The Pulpit of DUMC

#88. August 16 - Rev. Shane Page

Episode Summary

This week we come to the next appointed gospel lesson for the season as we contemplate Jesus’s healing of the daughter of an anonymous Canaanite woman (Matthew 15:21-28) It is, of all of Jesus’s healing stories, one of the strangest and, for our eyes and ears, discomforting stories in the gospels. Tucked in size this bewildering encounter, however, is, if we will dig deep enough, good news indeed.
