To close, I wanted to offer you a piece of this week’s lectionary that I found particularly meaningful.

50“Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” – Mark 9: 50

As always, Let me know if you have any questions.

Hope to see you soon!
