Welcome to Spring and to Father’s Day. As we walk, ride or drive around, or just sit and look out our windows, we can’t help but notice the growth of new leaves, buds and spring flowers.

For the regular readers of this message, you would be aware that I mostly put my thoughts into words on a Sunday evening. Today is no different, except I have had a different sort of day, because Allen and I went to see a movie, The Eagle Huntress, directed by Otto Bell, at the Regal Theatre at Birmingham Gardens.

While listening to the Gospel (Matthew 15:21-28) being proclaimed on Sunday, I was struck by the absolute persistence of a woman who believed in Jesus and who wanted her daughter to be cured. She, a Canaanite woman, an absolute outsider, would not take no for an answer. She persisted with her cause and eventually Jesus was forced to hear her and to acknowledge her great faith – and he cured her daughter. I am impressed that she showed great courage, amazing faith and hope and deep love; she is a model of the true disciple of Jesus.
