Sermons and Lessons - Special Edition

As I said a while back - Sermons and Lessons as a regular feature is no more, but there is the occasional special circumstance - Like this sermon from : The World of Doorman-Priest. A taste just to wet your appetite:
The great faith of this mother who breaks all boundaries out of love is a model and challenge for our time. The Canaanite women would not accept the idea that Jesus was only sent for certain people. Her faith melted that barrier. It calls all of us to receive what Jesus has to offer and to push the limits and boundaries ourselves as we present that same Jesus and what he offers to others. We need to make the church a place to which a modern Canaanite woman, disadvantaged, despised and marginalised within society can come with her plea for mercy and grace and we need to make that church a place from which the word goes out, as from the Lord himself, “You have great faith. Your request is granted!”
Read the whole thing.
