A Defining Moment

"When I was a student at Western Seminary in 1975, I went through a difficult time of soul searching. I felt insignificant in a world filled with turmoil. My little place as a youth pastor seemed unimportant. God used this time to reinforce the truth that my daily task was to love God and love my neighbor. I did not have to change the world."
