Scripture Reading: The Syrophoenician Woman’s Faith / Jesus Cures a Deaf Man
I am dismayed. I am perplexed. I am disappointed. I am torn. I am miffed. I am discouraged. I am angry. I am sad. I am disillusioned. I am tired. I am in a quandary. These are all feelings that I am expressing right now, that could pertain to literally any one of at least a dozen issues that continue to divide our country; politically, religiously, racially, economically, and socially.
