Today’s Question: What have you seen or heard or touched concerning the word of life?
Br. David Vryhof tells us that faith is rooted in tradition with added teachings that we have received, but it has to be authentic and real, based and rooted in our lives. We need to share how living with Jesus has made a tangible difference in our lives. Br. David talks about calling a witness to the stand and only allowing those to testify who had actually seen something, who know something, who have heard something, or who was there for whom the experience was real and tangible.
How appropriate for today’s meditation as I’ve been on jury duty all this week! As I reflect, it is true that the evidence is overwhelming when someone speaks of being at the event rather than on hearsay from others.
I wrote a memoir a few years ago that chronicles when I realized that I had seen Christ. I’d like to learn how to give a verbal witness of Christ so that people know that I have seen Him and know Him with the authenticity of one who was there.
