Passage: Psalms 148:1-14 & Jeremiah 4:23-28    
  Series Summer 2017
  Description: When I read through today’s passage from Jeremiah, the image that came to mind was a pile of large ancient wisdom-filled books landing with a loud thud on my desk sending any dust around them into the air. Thud. The word of God lands and all around it shakes. No bird sings. We all wonder what life will be like when the dust settles. The book of Jeremiah is 52 chapters long. We need to know that there is no word of hope and reconciliation until chapter 30. From the description of Jeremiah’s call as a prophet in chapter One, the following 29 chapters are clear-shooting, poetic and poignant indictments against the people of Judah and their faithlessness. The consequences of their insincerity and disloyalty to God are prophesied to be catastrophic—politically, socially, theologically and environmentally. With a cosmic thud, Jeremiah’s prophetic prose lands in the midst of one the stormiest, most tumultuous times in the history of Israel.

Passage: Matthew 5:13-16    
  Series Summer 2017
  Description: Be salt! Be light! That’s the mission Jesus gives us. Be salt! Be light! for the world. In your communities. In your families. At work. At school. At play. In every decision. In every activity. In how you use your resources. In how you present yourself. Be salt! Be light! That’s what Jesus said was the Way for his followers. So what does it mean to be salt & light? ....... I’ve been pondering these ideas. We are to be salt and light – but too much salt and light aren’t a good thing. If the only food we had was salt, that would be bad for us and for the earth. If we had only light, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, that would be bad for us and for the earth. What if, what if, Christianity isn’t meant to be the only faith in the world? What if there is meant to be a sprinkling of followers of the Way of Jesus throughout the world rather than a whole Christian empire ruling the world? What if we are here to bring out the hope, the healing, the welcoming, the joy in life – but not to be the whole show or the only show?
