I have been thinking a lot about witnesses lately due in large part to my husband being out of town for an extended length of time. One of my favorite movies is a remake of a Japanese film called Shall We Dance starring Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon as husband and wife.
In one compelling scene Sarandon is talking with a private investigator about why it is that people get married. She muses that people take the chance on marriage "because we need a witness to our life. What does any one life mean? But in marriage you are saying your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it; your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness."
I understand what she means. I have missed my witness the last couple weeks: the man who is so good at interpreting my face, knows my mood and promised to see the real and still stick around. He...
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
