God calls each of us to witness to God. We are called to share the transformational love of God that is offered to all of the world. We talked about this in worship recently at Palmyra United Methodist Church. The challenge was given to look for ways to witness to God in the world. My prayer was to find ways to witness to God’s love.
God answered that prayer. Monday morning my phone rang. A couple I had never met wanted to get married. Could I? Would I? They did not have any financial resources, but they wanted a Christian wedding rather than a civil wedding. I had a meeting at 2:00, but I could do it before then. They showed up. We went in the sanctuary. They were married. We took a couple of pictures. They left. It was less than ten minutes, but sometimes the witnessing is not a time consuming event.
Are you open to the possibilities? Are you willing to witness?
