Lent 6 - Year A
Passion Sunday Isaiah 50:4-9
Having the tongue of a teacher does not clearly define behavior. If we use the gospel lessons, Jesus' tongue sends out instructions - go get a donkey - and Jesus’ tongue says nothing at all and cries out, "Forsaken!" and simply cries out - even dying becomes a holy word from a teacher's tongue.
The tongue of a teacher is shaped by what they are listening to. If they are not continually being filled, there is a fading - a yellowed lesson plan is a "yellow" way to teach.
So, what are you listening to these days?
