A Conversation with Gary Emery
In this episode of Better Roads, Randall visits with Gary Emery, seasoned pastor and pastor of pastors, who recently lost his eyesight. While we choose many of our roads in life there are some that seem to be assigned to us without our consent. Blindness was not Gary’s choice. It was suddenly thrust upon him. Gary shares about adjustments he is making to becoming blind, about what he does with the “Why?” question, and what he is learning along the way.
