Follow the calling
Curt Ebert was the pastor in his local church when the call came to hike the Appalachian Trail. The remarkable circumstances surrounding that call are introduced in this conversation with Steve. Curt had little hiking experience and, though they were a family who enjoyed the open air and had gone on day hikes on the Appalachian Trail, his decision was, for many reasons, somewhat unusual.
Curt's wife was able to join him for the first 50 miles of the trail, then shared the 100 Mile Wilderness with him. Katahdin looms in the distance behind them.
While his children remained at home, they were able to visit and support him on his journey. Here they are at the 1500 mile mark.
Steve's intellectual curiosity and Curt's unwavering faith make for an absorbing conversation.
