Neal Bosshardt: You are the salt of the earth—lessons from a salt miner +Taste and See Bible Study Lesson 4

The Joycast -
One of the fascinating details that I’ve learned about salt since the book and Bible study released came from a who explained that the holy water he uses isn’t just blessed, but it also contains a pinch of salt. Why? Because when people are baptized the church, when the water dries it leaves a thin coating or residue, reminding each one that they are the salt of the earth. Today, I’m talking to Neal Bosshardt, who has been mining salt since the age of 11. You’ll learn deep Biblical insights alongside the difference between various salts, how to pick a true, high quality salt for your table.

Dr. Norman Wirzba: Rediscovering Grace Around the Table

The Joycast –
In a world where we’re busy and on budgets, eating has become transactional rather than transformational. 

We often find ourselves disconnected from the food we eat.  

Additionally, we often seek out the fastest and cheapest options with little thought to where it comes from, how it’s grown, or how the farmers and animals were treated in the process. This episode will change the way you think about food and gather around the table.

Rachel Marie Stone: How to Banish Angst and Anxiety When it Comes to Food

The Joycast – 

When it comes to the table, food can be a source of endless angst and anxiety. 

My friend, Rachel Marie Stone, author of Eat With Joy: Redeeming God’s Gift of Food, says it doesn’t have to be this way. And she equips us to practice intentionality around the table. 

When we’re more intentional, we’re less conflicted. And we experience more joy. 

One of my favorite moments is when she gives us the 3 words that we all must eliminate from our collective vocabulary.

We had the best time hanging out, and we think you will, too.
