My faith journey began on a mountain top in the turbulent 60s. It was there I first read the Bible at the ripe age of 20. Nothing in my background prepared me for the strange world of the Bible. But there was something in the Jesus story that spoke to my thirsty soul. It was what I call Jesus' "earthly transcendence" that so contrasted with the mystics I was studying. It has been almost 40 years since that initial encounter and I have never ceased being amazed with the wisdom of His ways and the depth of his love.
