Completing a journey: Terah and Abram

Have you ever set out on a journey, perhaps a walk in the countryside, and not reached your end goal? Perhaps you became tired and turned back, or passed an attractive tea-room and decided to stop there? This may be what happened to Terah, the father of Abram (later known as Abraham). Although we don’t know for sure, it seems that God prompted Terah to leave Ur and set off for Canaan, but he stopped part way, at Harran.
