Mark 10:2-16 is a perplexing text. "Some Pharisees came, and to text him they asked...". In this text Jesus calls the church to be vulnerable, to change understandings, to include the lives of women and children in the ministry of care and concern. Today's world is not so different; is Jesus calling us to care for the most vulnerable in our society? The immigrant? The women? The children? The elderly? Jesus says receive them, care for them.
