The Local Church as a Reconciling Community

Blessing of the Backpacks for back-to-school


Pamela Gordon is the creative pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Paducah, Kentucky.  She and her church’s EcoFair outreach idea will be featured in an upcoming issue of Outreach magazine, in my column Small Church, Big Idea.

But apparently that’s not the only idea that Pam and her folks have had.  This past Sunday they had a special “blessing of the backpacks” service before kids head back to school.  The local TV station picked up the church’s story, and ran this article with video clip, which gave the church some positive press.
