Today’s scripture was Matthew 5:13-20. It talks about light and salt and how salt symbolizes the people of the earth and light symbolizes God. Back then, in Jesus’ time, salt was used as more than just making food taste better. It was used to trade, preserve meats, and to clean out wounds. The light of the story was Jesus and God. Back then there was no electricity so to them the sun, moon, stars were very important.
In the 3rd and 4th grade class they were making stained glass windows. This showed the shining light in us and let the light shine through.
In the 5th and 6th grade classes they made paintings with salt and water colors. They painted a picture of anything in the community using salt to show us that God is in us and around us.
