Feb 5, 2017 - "The salt of the Earth?"

Father Jonathan gives us a crazy thesis: Jesus came to break our hearts. If you follow the teachings, eventually your heart will break. God intends this to happen.

When it happens, and it will, in fact it should, you become the salt of the earth. Your tears, your sweat this is the salt of the earth. In the Orthodox tradition this is called The Gift of Tears because it washes your eyes so you can see more clearly and it washes your inner eye so you see what needs to be done - with your labors, your sweat. The world reveals itself to be an abundant place. Through your tears and your sweat you become the salt of the Earth.
