Author's Note: Last week I visited my college classmate, Brad. Below is the resulting article. It is not often that I covet the talents of others, but when writing this I wished I had the skill of others to articulate the grace that I encountered. The point of this was not to try and turn my friend into a saint or to confess my faults as a sinner. It is merely my attempt to share a moment in time that transformed me. It was the best I could do given my deadlines.
