A Grain of Salt…

I recently received another lesson about salt from my friend, Wayne Roberts, and I thought I would share it. 

“To take something with a grain of salt” refers to an Ancient Roman recipe for an antidote that protects against all kinds of poisons. The recipe was to take two dried walnuts, two figs, and twenty leaves of rue; pound them all together, with the addition of a grain of salt. It was believed that if a person took this mixture fasting, he will be protected against all poisons for that day.”

Leadership training is a valuable resource for protecting the church from possible “poison.”

Thank you, Wayne.
