    After 59 years of being a Jesus-follower, 49 of those as a minister, I confess that the Jesus story remains an unfathomable story.

    From what can be known, it seems that he had been a good son, a loving brother and a true friend.  Yet, at a time when others his age were caring for their families, he chose another way.  Long before he could have known, there was a call upon his life, and there came a day when he knew it was time to heed the call.
