Witnessing by Action

Our dock went in Monday.  Can summer be far behind!
St. Francis said, "Preach the Gospel at all times; if necessary, use words."  Talking is the first way that comes to mind when I hear Jesus say, "You shall be my witnesses."
Far more effective is the way we, as Church, act.  St. Paul gives us a checklist: heartfelt compassion, generosity, humility, gentleness, patience, putting up with one another, forgiveness, peacefulness, gratitude, and "over all these put on love." (Colossians 3:12-15)
