That’s Some Salty Language!

That’s the title.

And that’s about as far as I’ve gotten on my sermon for Sunday. Well, ok, that’s not entirely true.

I’ve read the texts for this week: Isaiah 58:1-12 and Matthew 5:13-20. Isaiah and Jesus offer startling definitions of righteousness – of how God wants people to live. And I’ve read some commentary on those texts and I have some thoughts about them:

What does life in the kingdom of God look like?

What is a truly good (or righteous) life?

What might such a life look like in our globalized, and often polarized, world?

But mostly I just keep coming back to this incredible picture from Egypt taken last week:








That’s the best expression of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount teachings I’ve ever seen.

What do you think?


We’ll ponder that some more, explore questions, sing, pray and share Holy Communion at Woodridge United Methodist Church this Sunday at 9:00 & 10:30am. All are welcome! We’d love to have you join us.
