In this text Jesus’ inclusive vision of the community that lives under the reign of God is expanded even further through an encounter with a gentile woman of faith. This encourages us to celebrate diversity and pursue inclusivity, trusting that our own vision of the beloved community will be expanded and our lives enriched in ways beyond our capacity to predict through engagement with difference.
