"Humble Beginnings"

Jesus grew up in a small town -- Nazareth.  I’ve lived in two rural small towns in my life. And I will say there is a definite charm about life in such places.  There’s a warmth available there you can’t easily find in larger communities, if you are considered a member, that is.  You can’t do anything without visiting with the people you do business with, and this can take your whole day.  You may not have to walk more than three short blocks to the drug store, but don’t plan on getting out of there in under an hour.
