Text Message!

Today is the second release in the new “Text Message” series.  What’s that all about, you ask?  Good question!  Text messages (at least here at ChurchSalt) are little snippets of Scripture that folks like you and I may find a bit challenging.  In some cases they might even make us uncomfortable!  But that’s good, right?  […]

I Want What I Want

It amazes me how little thought people give to what they, and their leaders, say and do in these modern times.  For example, in California they have recently been debating the issue of end-of-life options and if legal options should include doctor assisted suicide.  Governor Jerry Brown, when asked to explain his approval of this […]
