There's slavery in this week's Bible reading from Luke 7:1-10.  Jesus doesn't say a word.

There's a possibility of a centurion who is humble.  There's also the possibility of a centurion who is embarrassed or afraid to be seen with Jesus.

There's support in the community for one who may not have acted like it, but who represented iron-fisted rule and oppression.

And what does Jesus do?  Healing, love, and restoration.

Because that's what Jesus does.
