Scripture: Matthew 15: 21 – 28
Matthew 15: 21 – 28 – Jill A. Kirchner-Rose, MDIV, DMIN – On this Sunday in which we bless backpacks, we will explore the question, “What are you learning?” The question demands more from us than simply learning reading, writing, and arithmetic. We are invited to learn from the marginalized, the outcast, the invisible of our day. In our scripture passage, Jesus learns and grows. Jesus pivots away from entrenched beliefs to embrace a new way. Uncomfortably challenged, Jesus opens his heart and mind to new possibilities. May we do so, too.
