There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I my brothers and my cousins against the world.
Out of the same land our Creator brought another people who were to be separate from the world but to positively affect the world.
Out of those people came our Christ, one who did not neglect His immediate family and yet literally offered to help everyone on the planet born or ever to be born.
About 1,950 years later, my father met that man.
As a result, many of you are here. Not because of one great moment in meeting Tex, but because of a hundred or a thousand small moments with him.
