"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
Being Salt and Light is our evangelism series for Lent, based on Matthew 5:13-16. Each week contains a reflection and two dares designed to inspire and activate you in evangelism. We really hope you will enjoy participating, and will grow in confidence sharing your faith with the people you encounter during Lent, and afterwards. What can you expect this year?
