Have you ever been to the NY State Fair? Remember the crowds?
When I read that Jesus was surrounded by a crowd at the side of the lake, I imagine something similar to this.
Now in this crowd, a woman came and touched his cloak in hopes to be made well.
In the eyes of Jesus, this woman who was once “nameless” was now referred to as “daughter”. Jesus was showing that we are all created equal as Sons and Daughters of God.
Let us jump from Capernaum to the amazing things that have happened this week.
- Marriage of equality from the Supreme court.
- Amazing Eulogy by President Obama for the fallen in Charleston.
- 1st African American Bishop in the Episcopal Church.
And Jesus is still showing that we are all created equal as Sons and Daughters of God.
Readings – Mark 5:21-43
