It’s a tall order.

Jesus must have known that when he instructed his disciples to be “the salt of the earth” and “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:13-16). In these challenging times, it seems even taller.

This series does not offer answers. It does offer opportunities to think together about what it means to be being salt and light in complicated contexts.  It won’t be easy, but it may be urgent.

Fortunately for us, Jesus also said, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). I, for one, am counting on that.

Glad we’re in this together,
