BRIAN McLAREN was the speaker at our “Jesus in the 21st Century” weekend seminar in 2013. His parting words were on the value of the Good News of Jesus, valid as much today as it was in the days of the early church.
The scripture reading reveals how the vulnerable and uneducated — in this case a slave girl — are the first to understand the message of Jesus. McLaren says this story should be studied closely to help us understand the impact of the Good News. It starts with people at the bottom who are normally disenfranchised, people who are considered unimportant and secondary by the those in power. Then it spreads upward through the levels of society.
