A few years ago, a popular comedian came to Tyler and performed at the Oil Palace. His act was so crude and sexually explicit that a couple from our church told me they had to get up after a few minutes and walk out. That wasn’t easy to do, but they did it because they refused to sit there and listen to that mess. Later another couple who saw them walk out said, “When we saw you walking out, it gave us the courage to walk out as well.” That’s what it means to be salt.
