The young politician stood in front of the energized auditorium. Echoes of a slogan he had only recently learned rung in his ears. He had something to say, a message that needed to be heard. The faces of the crowd spoke to him. Adrenaline rushed through his veins as he perceived hope, desperation, sadness, expectation….. Each man, woman, and child wore badges bearing his name, yet none of them really knew him. How did they know he was telling the truth? How did they know he was the one on whom to cast their vote? True, they had a biographical sketch, a record of service, but most importantly, they had testimonies, testimonies of those who had seen him back up the words he was about to say. Life long friends, business associates, and people on the other side of bridges never burned…the crowd silenced, anticipating wisdom. Yet he waited one more moment, closed his eyes and silently thanked the One who testified for him before anyone else even knew his name.
