Called to Be a Witness is the answer to a prayer that Pamela prayed as she cried out from her heart to the Lord for new meaning and purpose in her life after the loss of her son in 2016. The Lord then directed her to write her life's story in a book, and He gave her this title. Pamela shares how God's grace is the "light" in her life that has kept her through her battles with the "darkness" which has attempted to overtake her through childhood abuse, fear, hatred, rebellion, rejection, betrayal, witchcraft, sickness, loss and heartbreak. The Lord opened the spirit realm to her and has guided her with dreams, visions and discernment as she has faced each challenge. Her desire is that her story will give hope and encouragement to others.

“A beautiful novel” of life and death, past and present, and the thin lines that lie between them (The Toronto Star). On a streetcar, on Christmas Day, 1950, clutching the chrome rail in front of him, Martin Radey looks at the woman seated beside him, a stranger, and utters his last words: “I can’t breathe.” Like millions, billions before him, it is his turn to die. But death is not what he expected. The journey has only begun. From 1880 to 1950, time happens to the world around him, not to memory, because memory, he discovers, is beyond time, traveling forward with him, shaping the earth, the sky, the heart. The prequel to the widely celebrated Shadow of Ashland, A Witness to Life “is an emotionally charged experience that will not soon be forgotten.” (Dallas Morning News)

Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, “my yoke is sweet and my burden is light,” he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?” A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.” At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her “a saint for our times.” Chiara entrusted her first baby to the blessed Virgin, but felt as though this child was not hers to keep. Soon, it was revealed her daughter had life-threatening abnormalities. Despite universal pressure to abort, Chiara gave birth to a beautiful girl who died within the hour. A year later, the death of her second child came even more quickly. Yet God was preparing their hearts for more—more sorrow and more grace. While pregnant a third time, Chiara developed a malignant tumor. She refused to jeopardize the life of her unborn son by undergoing treatments during the pregnancy. Chiara waited until after Francesco was safely born, and then began the most intense treatments of radiation and chemotherapy, but it was soon clear that the cancer was terminal. Almost immediately after giving birth to Francesco, Chiara’s tumor became terminal and caused her to lose the use of her right eye. Her body was tested, and so was her soul as she suffered through terrible dark nights. She said “yes” to everything God sent her way, becoming a true child of God. And as her days on earth came to an end, Enrico looked down on his wife and said, “If she is going to be with Someone who loves her more than I, why should I be upset?” Each saint has a special charisma, a particular facet of God that is reflected through her. Chiara’s was to be a witness to joy in the face of great adversity, the kind which makes love overflow despite the sorrow from loss and death.

Churches have begun awakening to social and political injustices, often carried out in the name of Christianity. But once awakened, how will we respond? Who Will Be a Witness offers a vision for communities of faith to organize for deliverance and justice in their neighborhoods, states, and nation as an essential part of living out the call of Jesus. Author Drew G. I. Hart provides incisive insights into Scripture and history, along with illuminating personal stories, to help us identify how the witness of the church has become mangled by Christendom, white supremacy, and religious nationalism. Hart provides a wide range of options for congregations seeking to give witness to Jesus' ethic of love for and solidarity with the vulnerable. At a time when many feel disillusioned and distressed, Hart calls the church to action, offering a way forward that is deeply rooted in the life and witness of Jesus. Dr. Hart's testimony is powerful, personal, and profound, serving as a compass that points the church to the future and offers us a path toward meaningful social change and a more faithful witness to the way of Jesus.

The 2010 earthquake in Haiti buried Renee Splichal Larson in concrete rubble, killing her husband and leaving her a widow at age 27. Surviving only to be overwhelmed by loss and trauma, she wondered if life was still possible for her. Even as she trained to become a pastor, her faith in a loving God was shaken and battered by the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince and took the lives of many thousands. This is Renee's moving story of love, grief, survival, and new life. It is an account of the lives of three young people, their experience of the challenges, beauty, and hospitality of Haiti, and the tumult that overthrew all they held dear. After years of struggle and healing, aided by remarkable signs of the love and presence of God, Renee offers us an intimate look at her young romance, her experience of the earthquake, and the journey that followed. Most of all, she proclaims her hard-won witness: that in Christ, love and life conquer death. ""Renee Splichal Larson provides us with a story of hope in A Witness. It is a moving, heartfelt story that had to be told. It brings with it the visceral longings of life in the face of death, relief amid despair, light in darkness. Any who have ever known pain or loss can benefit from her story. She points us to the place that brought meaning when everything seemed lost: the foot of the cross."" --Paul E. Hoffman, Author, Faith Forming Faith ""A Witness testifies to the burning intensity of love that knew the richness and fullness of infinite possibilities--shared laughter, life, love of God, ministry, and music--and to love that knows a quaking earth, shattered buildings, and the crushing finitude of the death of many Haitians and Splichal Larson's young husband, Ben. Her sorrow embraces the fullness of resurrection hope and passionate new life. Splichal Larson witnesses to love that is stronger than death."" --Evon O. Flesberg, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Pastoral Theology and Pastoral Counseling, Vanderbilt University ""Theodicy and martyrdom! Theodicy: Why do bad things happen to good people--each precious one killed by the earthquake, including a young man with an exquisite soul named Ben? Martyrdom: Witness to Jesus Christ--not only in dying, but in living by thin prayer and fragile hope in God's promise beyond all theodicy! --Craig L. Nessan, Academic Dean, Wartburg Theological Seminary ""Renee has written a beautiful book that bursts with life even as it faces tragedy and death. It shines with hope though it passes through heartbreak. She is profoundly generous to share her life with us like this on these pages. You'll cry with her, but also smile often. As Renee invites you to witness what she has witnessed, you'll be inspired in your faith, your love, and your life."" --Kent Annan, Co-Director of Haiti Partners; Author, Slow Kingdom Coming Renee Splichal Larson is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Born and raised in North Dakota, Renee is a graduate of Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota, and Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa. She is married to Jonathan Splichal Larson, who is also a pastor in the ELCA, and their son is named Gabriel. Renee and Jon are both survivors of the 2010 Haiti earthquake. A Witness is Renee's first book.

WILL WE REALLY BE PROTECTED? DOES GOD HAVE A SPIRITUAL SAFE HOUSE? HISTORICALLY, our nation has provided a program to protect witnesses in critical court cases. Such cases often hinge on the testimony of individuals who have personal, eyewitness accounts of criminal activity. The threat of not having justice served on a known criminal (e.g., Satan or unrepentant people) puts all at risk for potential danger. GOD HAS A SIMILAR PROGRAM for those who come out of the shadows to serve as a witness against Satan. THESE ARE SOME OF THE INSIGHTS REVEALED: • The Day God Trusted Us into Battle— decisions at the crossroad • Struggles and Penalties of a Witness— football by comparison • Satan's Desire to Sift the Witness— the culinary experience • We Are Employed by God to Witness— on our secular jobs • Trust the Program— no prenuptial agreement required Since God establishes all spiritual events in the fullness of time, we can rest assured of the role we must play and the manner in which it plays out. This type of lifestyle demands a walk by faith, not by sight. The Christian agenda has been described in many ways, but above all, we are expected to be a witness. This study will show that it's the safest place on Earth, for it comes with divine Witness Protection!
