‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.’ (Matthew 5:13)
Salt is an amazing thing. It adds taste and preserves food, and it is essential to life. Historically, salt was very costly. Jesus described his followers as being like salt (and light) in the world. What does this mean? How can we be like salt to the world?
You would be very welcome to join us at 10:30am in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look at being salt and light in the world.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
If you encounter problems with viewing the service via Facebook (or YouTube) please follow the link for YouTube (or Facebook) instead.
