Being Authentic

#42 #gandhi led a salt march as part of a larger protest campaign against British rule in India in 1930. The British government were making huge amounts of money through salt “production” and yet it was there for all to take. Gandhi recognised that people need salt: to season, to cleanse and heal and to clean. A quote from the #morningprayer reading, #mark9v38toend got me thinking: “Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” Perhaps this is talking about the healing nature of salt, perhaps the idea that rubbing salt in a wound can make things worse…and yet we still need to be at peace. Another interpretation could be how salt enhances a dish and brings out the flavour…we should be bringing out the true flavour of ourselves and being authentically who God created us to be. Whichever it is, be at peace today! (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
