The Salt & Light Ministry of Georgetown Christian Fellowship is intended to assist Christians to be an influence for Christ and push back against the darkness that threatens our families and culture. Its purpose is to inform and educate by providing Biblical education, resources, and tools to effectively influence society.

President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have disagreed about the future of a post-war Gaza Strip. President Biden wants a “revitalized Palestinian Authority” and a two-state solution. Prime Minister Netanyahu said that any government that rules Gaza must not be one that “supports terrorism, pays terrorists and their families, and educates their children to murder Jews and eliminate the State of Israel.”

We pray for the U.S. president and Israeli prime minister as they consider the options for Israel to address terrorism, and for God’s will to be accomplished in Israel and her leadership. 

“Therefore, I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus” — 1 Timothy 2:1-5 (NKJV).

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was a pastor and author, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. In this biography of Bonhoeffer's life, author Eric Metaxas reveals the pastor’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler's Germany; his involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and "Operation 7;" and much more. https://ericmetaxas.com/books/bonhoeffer/ 

On December 2, 2023, the Washington Post published a story highlighting the abuse and death of a child whose family claimed to “homeschool.” Since the release of that article, Michigan’s Attorney General Dana Nessel has called for “monitoring mechanisms'' to be used in order to “protect children.” Along with the Attorney General, Representative Matt Koleszar (D-22nd District) has also called for the registration and regulation of home educators state-wide. He plans to bring a bill to congress next month. Please pray for AG Nessel and Rep. Matt Koleszar to have a change of heart and for homeschool freedoms in Michigan to be protected.

Vice President modeled after Aaron

Senate modeled after the 70 elders Moses appoints in Numbers 11:16

Congress and local city governments modeled after those appointed to lead groups of 1,000, 100, 50

Fathers (Family unit) modeled after those appointed to lead groups of 10

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by people. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Your light must shine before people in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven." - Matthew 5:13-16 (NASB)
