WHY I DON’T WITNESS TO PEOPLE ON AIRPLANES“I’ve never ‘witnessed’ to anyone on an airplane. I’ve never asked my seatmate if he’s secured his ticket to heaven, never quizzed the flight attendant on her Ten Commandments record… I’m not sure I know what it means to ‘witness’ to a person anymore. Somewhere in my mid-twenties, I drifted off the Romans Road and stumbled onto a bigger, wilder Gospel in which salvation is less about individual ‘sin management’ and more about God’s relentless work restoring, redeeming, and remaking the whole world.” This is an intriguing article I came across yesterday in which Rachel shares her struggle with witnessing and poses the question, “What does it mean to ‘witness’ to someone?”
