It’s hard to explain Salt+Light…
so let these videos do the job!
From the moment it was created, people asked what Salt+Light was. And the folks over at A Work in Progress Productions found the team hard to describe…. but, 4 years and 3 documentaries later, we finally have an answer. These three documentaries explain the concept behind the group (#1), what it’s like to be in the group (#2), and finally, how the group impacts the community (#3). Check out all three videos in this playlist, and below, please find the third installment to the trilogy: SERVING, by Cole Paul
