Can I Get a Witness?

(A Sermon Series on How to Share Your Faith–Without Feeling Creepy)

We’ve all been there.
Every one of us.

A conversation emerges with a friend or family member, a neighbor, colleague or co-worker.
Then, out of the blue, it gets real.

Someone becomes vulnerable. The guard comes down.
You sense an openness to something more—something true, good, profound.
Maybe even holy.

And there it is.
Like a door flung wide open, you COULD go there if you wanted.
Here is your chance to bear witness, to share faith, and actually say something so real and so true that it might change everything for them.

And you freeze.

It’s not that you don’t want to speak.
It’s not that you don’t want to share Grace with them, like broken bread and flowing wine.
But you find yourself tripping over a scarcity of words and an abundance of worries.

What if I say something wrong?
What if I sound foolish? Come off too pushy? Too spiritual? Too religious?
What if they ask me a question I can’t answer?
What if I actually don’t know what I’m talking about?
What if walking through this door changes our relationship?

We are paralyzed a thousand “what ifs?”

But here’s one more.
What if bearing witness to your faith didn’t have to be weird?

What if it could feel as natural, as authentic, as real as telling a hungry friend where to find the best meal in town?

It can be.
I hope you will join us Sunday for this very important series.

Have I told you lately how much I love being your pastor?
Well I do.
