Gratitude 2/5

Preaching was hard today. I would love to be able to preach in generalities that allow us to forget about life for awhile. Instead I preached the word that reminds us we are salt and light because Jesus said so…and he calls us to take our salt and light into the world. For today that means defending and walking alongside our Muslim brothers and sisters (and anyone else we fear). 

Today I’m personally thankful for: the unconditional love of God that is ours through Jesus; that I’m called to this hard task of preaching; the forgiveness that is mine for all the times I fail to live as salt and light.
