As I get older, I reflect more and more upon the people who have influenced my life through the years. My parents and siblings come to the forefront of my mind immediately. Other relatives and friends have made significant impacts at different phases of life. Religious leaders have helped nurture my faith life. The medical community has literally kept me alive. It is a little scary when I realize that I have allowed strangers to use their skills and knowledge to do some pretty intricate surgeries on my body.
What would it be like to sit with Jesus in the flesh and have a conversation for one hour? How about John the Baptist?
