Salt and Light Blessing
(inspired by Matthew 5:13-16)

In a world that is always asking us
to become something,
some success story,
In this place we say:
don’t become,
who we already are.

Don’t become light –
be the light you already are –
this is what God anciently placed in you.

Don’t become salt –
be the salt you already are –
it is in this way you are known to God.

For from these elements:
Salt and Light,
God uniquely crafted you.

Don’t become anything –
be who you are,
and discover the one who loves you
in your be-ing.
