Go to any spot where a lot of people are moving around you’ll see something that used to happen only rarely: people walking around with their heads bowed down. College student walking through campus, professionals crossing streets. There even men and women riding bikes...

Young man, here is something you need to remember: we all wander. Whether towards or away from God, closer to or further away from friends, nearer to the righteous path or fumbling around in the mud of sin.

Traveling with my family last year, we all got to experience Jerusalem for the first time. The trip was eye-opening, wonderful and jarring all at once.
