Revealing Who You Are

Sermon summary for February 9, 2020 (worship cancelled due to snow) Feb 9 – Revealing Who You Are Read Matthew 6:13-16       We are to be what God created us to be – salt and light.  What does it mean to be salt and light?  What does Jesus mean when he warns us not to lose our saltiness or hide our light?

Greetings!  For my first post, I share a bit about my background. I am very excited to be living in Wisconsin again and to be living closer to family in Sauk County.  I grew up in Ohio, but have always considered Wisconsin to be my home.  I vacationed at my cousin’s dairy farm in Sauk County every year as a child, and I still enjoy going to visit at the farm as often as I can.  My dad’s side of the family immigrated to Wisconsin from Germany and settled on land near our cousin’s farm in the mid 1800’s.  I previously lived in Madison for 15 years...
