"Surrounding myself with those that Jesus would"

I have felt the call for years. It's been the most silently real yet consistent and palpable sensations of my soul. When I first experienced Jesus as an adult, I understood him differently than I do today. I heard him call me to be active in the church to bring more into the physical structures and religious strictures of Christendom. I worked in a Christian bookstore, I went to charismatic revivals, and I proselytized by going out into the world (and sometimes invited that world into my home to critique, to challenge, and to condemn).
