Sermon: “Dog Days” Rev. Garren preaching
Synopsis: It may be one of the most disturbing (and, at the same time reassuring ) passages in all of scripture. Jesus doesn’t always get it right!! We catch him snubbing, and even making disparaging comments to a foreigner … an outsider. As painful as it is to witness this encounter with the Canaanite woman, she is quick to point out the error of his Way - whereupon Jesus’ makes a 180 degree attitude adjustment. Fact is - we don’t always get it right. Would that we could turn as quickly on that shiny dime in the middle of our Way.
