Sunday greetings everyone!
I recently discovered that the Cybersalt newsletter archives are showing the same issue over and over and over again instead of the different issue that went out in each mailing. I'm looking into a fix for this - or for clarification on what I am doing wrong in the process of putting the mailings together. I don't think it's due to an error between my keyboard and my seat, but I've learned to be open to the possibility!
Today's video share is one that moved me a few weeks ago. It's a video of Mr. Rogers getting inducted into the TV Hall of Fame. What really impresses me about this video is how Fred Rogers was able to communicate a message of encouragement to some, and correction to others without being offensive to anyone.
Sadly, there are some who think one of the key evidences that one is doing God's will is if lots of people are offended by what is being said or done. I wish such people would stop to consider and be open to the possibility that they reason might be because they are being rude jerks. Peter's command in 1 Peter 3:15 is important for opening as many doors as possible (or leaving as many doors open as possible) for our message: "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
This video is a great example of what that looks like.

Enjoy the rest of today's mailing!
