Our Jonathan and I came across a most fascinating man today in Atlanta. He had decided to ‘pick up his cross and follow Jesus,’ literally. On his shoulder was a heavy, 15 ft. long wooden cross, with a small wheel at it’s base. Josh Sarhan, 33, had left his home in Rogers, Arkansas, 37 days prior. Each day he walks, on average, some 15 miles. He witnesses to people about Jesus. Sarhan laments about the current state of the nation, saying we’ve become so tremendously “secular” and have pushed God out of so much of every day life. We have, in essence, become “a house divided.” (And he wasn’t talking about partisanship in the Congress.) Sarhan, who was involved with a Christian fellowship group in Arkansas, said he plans to walk 9,500 miles through the country in total. He said he left with no money, yet almost every time he stops at a restaurant someone will pay for the food (often anonymously). Or shortly after he pays for the food, someone comes up to him on the street and gives him money out of the blue. He also left with camping gear “…but I’ve never had to use it,” he smiled. Sarhan said each night someone either puts him up in their home, or give him money for a motel. “God always provides, it’s been amazing,” he added. Jonathan and I signed his cross. It’s filled with the signatures, and remarks, of those he’s met along the way.
