Our Bishop of the North/West Lower Michigan Synod, the Rev. Dr. Craig Satterlee, offers the sermon today on “Tough Stuff.”
And right off the bat, Jesus doesn’t beat around the bush, he doesn’t give us instructions on how to be salt and light; he declares to us who we are- salt and light. He’s not hinting at this and he’s not saying that we will one day be salt and light; no, right now, right here we are the salt of the earth and we are the light of the world.
Being blessed feels like you have someone’s unconditional regard, that someone will be with you wherever you go so that you will not be alone. It feels like you have worth because you are you and you deserve it.
