A Woman's Faith and the Disciples' Shame

It’s one thing to be rejected by a stranger, but it’s another thing entirely to be rejected by a friend or a family member. It hurts. But what happens when you’re rejected by the Son of God! Is there any hope for you after that? In Sunday’s Gospel lesson, Jesus rejects the Canaanite woman. What happens next and what we’re supposed to learn from this passage will cause us to walk The Way in an entirely different way.
