Notes for a talk Davis gave to students entering (it appears) the Lancaster YMCA F+M Academy. He discusses the Way of Life, as conceptualized by Jesus, is something we have yet to realize. This is one of the things being handed off in the relay race to this new generation --"You carry precious freight".
