â€œYou are the salt of the earth; butÂ if the salt has become tasteless, howÂ can it be made saltyÂ again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
You areÂ the light of the world. A city set on aÂ hill cannot be hidden;Â nor doesÂ anyoneÂ light a lamp and put it under aÂ basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.Â Let your light shine before men in such a way that they mayÂ see your good works, andÂ glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:13-16 (NASB)
This weekend is our annual Bible and Life Conference and the theme is “Salt and Light”.
We are outside of Kyiv in a little town called Bucha, which is absolutely breathtaking clothed in autumn colors.
About forty university students and staff from Ukraine’s central region have gathered to study the Word of God, to discuss the basics of the Christian faith and living that out on campuses, and to fellowship as a community of believers.
My jobs for the weekend? Decorator, drummer and photographer.
This is one of our annual events that staff and Christian students always look forward to. I am certain that it will be a wonderful time together.
