NORSE MYTHOLOGY: According to Norse mythology, long before the world began, the Norse god Buri (the one whose lineage gave birth the gods including Odin), was once buried alive in a salt lick (some stories has it as a stone). It was at that time, the “divine cow named Audhumia” began to lick. On the 1st day, Buri’s hair appeared, on the 2nd it was his head, and on the 3rd day his body was free.

TRANSITION: That’s what we’re going to do. We are going to take this generation, frozen in their sin, and free them (of course we will be using God’s Word—not the tongue of an ancient Viking cow). So let’s continue on how we do that, by studying on how we can be Salt of the Earth.
