Salt & Branch was created to be a place where anyone could come and be reminded that it's possible to find God's goodness in the midst of the mundane and the overwhelming. 

The closer I've gotten to Jesus, the more I realize He understands what it's like to be human (Hebrews 4:15-16). There's a lot of talk about theology and church and laws and sin. There's a lot of talk about God's wrath and repentance and the Holy Spirit. There's a lot of talk about Jesus dying on the cross.
Don't get me wrong, these are all wildly worthy topics to explore and one must. 

And in the midst of my life-altering grief, mind-numbing anxiety, and seemingly-ordinary (yet abundantly blessed) days, I am finding that Jesus empathizes with me. Us. 

We have a savior who gets it and I'm just trying to get to know Him.
