Pastor Gary explores the idea that the Syrophoenician Woman in today’s reading not only got what she asked for from Jesus, but her faith was the beginning of his ministry to the gentiles.

Reading: Mark 7:24-30

[Jesus] said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered him, “Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”Mark 7:27-28 (NRSV)
