Sick and tired of a different kind of virus

Mark 1:29-34a, NRSV

Reflections

Jesus demonstrates that he doesn’t care about gender, or purity, or class or social status. He and Simon’s household participate in radically inclusive hospitality and care in their healing ministry, the door is open and anyone is welcome to join and yet…. the town chooses to remain on the other side of those walls.

— Mira Sawlani-Joyner

  • In today’s scripture, Jesus not only healed Simon’s mother-in-law, He also sees her being as outcast
  • All who were outcast, because sickness was perceived as punishment by God, came to Jesus for help
  • virus of racism
