For anyone who read the previous post and wondered in desperation how an individual could affect social change in this topsy-turvy world read these "comfortable words".
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16 NIV
Shine as a light in the world to the glory of God the Father. Taken from the service of Baptism, Book of Common Prayer.
