This past weekend Doug was busy preparing our worship service for Sunday, in the midst of cooking breakfast for his family and playing with his kids. At one point, he set his guitar down in the dining room, propped up against one of the chairs. A few minutes later Mercy trotted over to her instrument basket and picked up her pink guitar and carefully situated it next to her dad’s.
Dallas Willard speaks powerfully of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. He is fond of employing the language of being an “apprentice”; of being a person devoted to learning and imitation.
