SAS Project

The SAS (Shadow and Shine) Project is an attempt in a blog format to have a stab at Matthew 28:20:

“Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

I take, one at a time, a commandment of Jesus to his disciples from the gospels.  I wrestle with it, looking through various different translations etc, and then try to express it in exactly 100 words.

I think there will eventually be about 70 in total. Here’s the ones done so far:
