The Notebook on Senility and Evangelism

Philly friend Ryan Khas posted some great thoughts on a movie called The Notebook - beautiful thoughts about senility and evangelism:
In the movie The Notebook, the male character reads to his senile wife every day and tries to remind her of their love story - the way he pursued her like a fool, her unfaithfulness through adversity, his patient restoration of her dream house in her absence, and their eventual life together. He reads to her every day, hoping for a sweet reunion in those rare, lucid moments when the cloud of sickness is lifted and she remembers her identity and their history. Those moments come and fade quickly, giving way to a violent and unnatural separation. Each day he returns, reading to her and looking for that spark in her eye that says she remembers.
So what does this have to do with evangelism? Go read the whole thing to find out. It's short, but well worth it.
