number of years 'Peter Rabbit', a horse, lived inside the city limits of Hickman, Nebraska before being 'evicted' because of an ordinance against having livestock in town. The eviction caused an uproar and divided the community.
"I feel bad for the poor horse. He's probably going to die soon anyway," said Jamie Cox, who manages the town bar, Sadie's Place. Hickman, with a population of just over 1,000 residents, is no longer a 'one-horse town.'

verse in Acts chapter 2 in which Peter proclaims 'God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.'
we are all witnesses. what an amazing statement of truth.

what do we witness?

beautiful music?
amusing stories about the heartland of America?
random basketball statistics?

for seven years, the people of Cleveland were witnesses to the self-proclaimed king of basketball, LeBron James. t-shirts and banners read 'We Are All Witnesses.' for seven years, fans of the Cavaliers 'witnessed' greatness.

we witness a plethora of great and mighty things each and every day - but do we remember and proclaim our encounters with Jesus?

are we witnessing or missing Jesus each day?
