Salt and light are two powerful metaphors that Jesus uses to describe the work of his followers in the world. It is one thing to listen to, agree with, and even internalize the ethical teaching of Jesus. However, Jesus doesn’t give and reenforce this teaching just to have it sit in our own sequestered lives. Jesus teaches and lives this vision of relationships and gives us these two powerful metaphors with the explicit expectation that we live this life in the world.
We hope you will join us in person or online as we wrestle together with this teaching.
February 5: Matthew 5:13-20
As we consider Jesus’ teaching it is too easy to engage in limited ministries. However, this passage leaves no doubt that we are supposed to make a difference in the world.
February 12: Matthew 5:21-37
Modern culture presses in upon us to see much of the world through the lens of what’s in it for us. It may be messy, but we can only slog through this life together.
February 19: Matthew 17:1-9 — Transfiguration Sunday
In a seen that leaves Peter, James, and John feeling deep fear, Jesus reminds us again that even in moments of fear and uncertainty grace empowers us to rise up.
February 26: Matthew 5:38-48
The steady diet of human conflict that we see and experience can easily leave us paralyzed. Jesus’ teaching is insight and empowerment to rise above it all
