    It’s called The Jesus Stories and as the title suggests that’s what Ted and I (Jeff Raught) try to do. Finding new ways, while visiting some of the old, to tell these stories of Jesus.

He wasn’t necessarily cultivating their attention, there just seemed to be something about him. So it was no surprise to Sue and I when he decided to become […]
