    The salty gospel of Jesus: Luke 14:25-33 Some of you may know that before I became a priest, I worked in communications.

    The world was going to end. But it didn’t. How often have we been here, listening to various media outlets trying to grab our attention with apocalyptic predictions which don’t come true?
