Ryan Ahlgrim, Pastor of First Mennonite Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches the story of the Syrophoenician Woman from Mark 7:24-37. Is it hard for you to change your mind? Did you know that Jesus changed his mind? The woman in today's passage, a Gentile woman, no less, causes Jesus to change his mind. She reminds Jesus to broaden his vision of who he is to minister to, not just the children of Israel, but the "dogs" of the world. She reminds Jesus that her daughter may not be a child of Israel, but her daughter is a "daughter of the household of humanity." Due to her persistence and lack of fear, "Even Jesus Changes His Mind."
