Jesus is the Question: Do You See This Woman?

In this second sermon in the series, Jesus is the Question, Russ looks at the question Jesus asks the Pharisee, Simon, "Do you see this woman?"  It is not always easy to see another person.  Sometimes we can observe someone and still not see them.  To see someone in the fullest sense requires an openness –– just who that person is; as they are –– which is sometimes beyond us.  As compassionate, socially aware Christians this question can cause us to feel some guilt about how we all too often ignore the poor and oppressed and how we fail to see the marginalized.  But it also is a reminder that Jesus is the one who sees fully, and loves completely.

Luke 7:36-50
