Grace Notes - Feb. 9, 2019

In this week’s Gospel lesson, we will hear Jesus tell us to live as salt of the earth and light of the world.

In the musical Gospel, songwriter Stephen Schwartz, put it this way in his song, “Light of the World”©: 

You are the light of the world! You are the light of the world! But if that light is under a bushel Brrr! It's lost something kind of crucial

You got to stay bright to be the light of the world

You are the salt of the earth! 

You are the salt of the earth! But if that salt has lost its flavor 

it ain't got much in its favor You can't have that fault and be the salt of the earth!

What does it mean to live as salt and light?

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.”  

Marianne Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.”  

This Sunday we will consider together: What does it mean to live as salt and light?  

Blessings on the journey,


"Seize the day!  Embrace the present!  Plan for the future! At all times, remain in God's presence, seek to follow Christ, and yearn for the direction of the Holy Spirit who will guide your steps all along the way."
