Online Worship: Jesus Once Again Raises the Bar

“Did Jesus just say what I think I heard? Oh, that’s gonna cause a ruckus!”

Jesus and the disciples are on the move when a woman appears on the edges. She calls out. She asks Jesus for help. He ignores her. And when she presses him, he calls her a (gulp) “dog.” What? We want to shout, “Where is our Jesus and what have you done with him?!” We, like the disciples, like the woman herself, ask Jesus to explain himself! Where is the lesson here? And who is meant to learn it? Humans – and canines – want to know. We return to the Base Camp of our church community to reflect – and to rest, refuel, and restore our sense of reverence.
