A "favorite text" this Sunday

At the local pastor's monthly meeting, we were all asked to share a favorite Biblical verse or text.  I offered Mark's story of Jesus and the Syrophoenician woman and shared why.

At the time, I had no idea it was this week's Gospel text.  I have an additional twist coming this Sunday, but to prep, here's my basic understanding of the story from years past.

(and yes, I do think Jesus called this woman a dog...and he wasn't testing her)

I'll post again after Sunday...
