Our text this week is gruesome: two witnesses for Christ abused, murdered, and profaned by the Roman empire. People often presume that this must reflect the way in which Christians were persecuted by the Romans, that simply proclaiming Christ as Lord would put a person at risk of death. In fact, there is very little evidence that Christians were ever treated this way individually, let alone, en mass. Similarly, today we risk little by proclaiming our 'belief' in Christ.

However, speaking out against the Roman empire, its leaders, and its practices would most certainly earn a person such treatment. What's the parallel risk we might take today? Are we willing to take it? Do we have the patience and faith that God will breathe new life into us after we've lost it?  This Sunday we'll begin to explore these questions, together.
