"Salt is good..."

Causing to Stumble
(Excerpt) "Be salty. 'Salt is good...' I think salt is one of those biblical images that has so many meanings. Salt is a preservative; it maintains life. Salt is the way in which we live our lives with favor and zest. 'Salt is good... .'

So, Jesus... [might say,] be salty... be filled with life, with zest -- preserving life."
Complete audio of this sermon: "Whose Responsibility?" Rev. Rolfe Granath, 9.27.15

Scriptural basis - Mark 9: 38-50
(Excerpt) 50 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”

A Humble Spirit
(Excerpt) "Create a pure heart in us, O God, and put a new and loyal spirit in us. Our sacrifice is a humble spirit; you will not reject a humble and repentant heart."
A church publication, CPCC, 10.4.15
