I first met Chuck Wenger after dinner on the same day I heard one of the best devotionals I can remember. I was a college intern at a conference for an international ministry called The Navigators. Being in the heart of my formative years, I spent that weekend hanging onto every word that fell from a speaker’s lips and to this day I still read my notebook from that conference. Despite the opportunity to sit in on some great talks from people that included the likes of Dallas Willard, the most influential thing the Lord taught me came from a humble man with a soft voice from South Africa who only spoke for about ten minutes. His name was Mike and he was the new President of the Navigators. But his new position had been tough on him.
