salt & light

     I'm far beyond excited! After months of praying and research, and praying... our church's Kitchen Ministry finally has it's very own name.
SALT Fellowship Ministry
     This simple name, taken from Matthew's gospel, chapter five, represents the ONLY reason we do what we do. 
     I love the way the Message Bible explains it so plainly... and in cooking terms. (If you don't salt your food during cooking, it has no flavor.)
     And as for the light... ours may come from the flame of the stove or from our big ole gas grill, but our mission is to pass out the Love of Christ along with each plate we fill.
     Read what it says... you can see why these words jumped off the page at me. ha

Matt. 5: 13-14 (The Message Bible)
"Let me tell you WHY you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? [Then,] you've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage."
"Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a HILL." 
... Or, a city named Richmond Hill
