Run Time: 05:06.  Gospel: Mt 17:1-9.

Instead of taking the time to discover what the other person is actually like, we just put on them our own overlays, stereotypes and personal expectations.  No wonder we are so routinely disappointed.  Do we ever allow ourselves the possibility that the other person could surprise us with their wonderful complexity and quirkiness?
The disciples thought they were following the liberator of their people.  They were right, but not in the way they thought.
