DR. ELAM S. KURTZ WAS A MAN OF GREAT VISION, a man of deep faith, and a man of enormous energy. With these qualities, and more, God formed, fashioned, and refined a person, and a medical doctor, who had a profound and pervasive positive influence upon the many people whom his life touched and whom he served.

To his patients he was known as Dr. Kurtz, or "Doc." To his friends he was referred to as Elam. His family addressed him as Dad, or, in later years he was affectionately referred to as "Pop."

Pop's eighty-six years of life yielded numerous transitions and changes in various areas and aspects of his living, or "crossings" as Dad alluded to these transitions. This book attempts to capture and share many of these crossings. Yet, more than relating just the actual crossings, the hope is that readers will discover in these pages inspiration and motivation for their own journey crossings. By reflecting upon how one of God's children--Elam S. Kurtz--embraced the transitions and crossings of life with great vision, deep faith, and enormous energy, may we also learn, and put into practice, the great lessons of life, seeking to serve God and humankind with our very best.
