A few years ago I received a call from a mom who was very concerned about her wayward son. She went on to describe how his grades were dropping, he was isolating himself, and how he wanted nothing to do with God or His church.
The mom kept saying things like, “I know you’re busy, you’ve got lots of other students to worry about.”
“When you get a chance, if you have a moment…”
“If your schedule clears up maybe you could just give him a call…”
