One day in 2010, Steve Turner was on his way home from work when he ran into an old high school basketball rival, Lewis Brown. They reminisced about old games and how the LA Times once called Lewis “...the best basketball player in the history of the California Interscholastic Federation.” It was like no time had passed at all, except that Stephen was now a successful lawyer and Lewis was living on the street. The friendship that followed, Stephen says “was a miracle from God.”
Guest: Stephen Turner is a lawyer living in the Los Angeles area and an “OG” member of Thad’s Episcopal Church in Culver City.
