Trusting in God's Grace

Date: August 17, 2014
Liturgical Day: The Tenth Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 15A)

a mother’s concern
faith: trusting, not believing
leaning on God’s grace

Summary: In a conversation between Jesus and a Canaanite woman which seems troubling to us, a gem appears: this woman shows us what the life of faith is all about. It doesn't have to do with "what" one comes to believe. It has to do with "whether" one comes to entrust all of life to God's care. May we learn, from her, that God is one who can be trusted. And may we learn, with her, how to entrust our entires lives to God.
