Gotta Get Out More

Jesus says we are to be salt and light. Salty German Lutheran pastor Helmut Thielicke declared amidst Berlin’s ruins, “… do not groan about being a solitary Christian, a small minority in a far greater pagan environment; you have been called to assault the whole godless mass… how often the power of this one grain of salt turns out to be mightily effective! [But you can’t stay in the salt cellar.] … You must get out, or else you will never find out that this is true. Your inner life grows in doing the tasks your Lord has set for you, but certainly never in the salt cellar.” (You Can Begin Again) Take the risk.

The Little Thimgs [sic]

Email from distressed student: “I am umable to access Camvas – HELP. [Canvas is our online learning system] The letter before m (om the keyboard) is mot workimg so I am workimg om it the best I cam.” Our empathic response: “We mever kmow how much we meed these thimgs umtil they are gome.” Have you expressed your gratitude for the letter before m today? Just try doimg without it.

It’s the Sensation

Sensationalism = “…a type of editorial bias in mass media in which events and topics in news stories and pieces are over-hyped to present biased impressions on events, which may cause a manipulation to the truth of a story.” Wikipedia Let him who is without this sin post the next “news” item on Facebook.
