Introduction: Why Blog?

Three reasons I can think of:
  • It will probably be a therapeutic and creative outlet to write about where I’ve come from, what I've wrestled with in the past, and what I'm working through now on my spiritual journey - especially as it relates to church. I'm hoping blogging will help me sort out where my head and heart are headed.
  • So that friends and family might better understanding why, after 27+ years of involvement in charismatic and evangelical protestant churches, numerous short-term missions trips, and two years at a prominent inter-denominational seminary, I’m now seriously re-examining the original historic Church.
  • To be part of the faith blogging community and to find camaraderie with fellow travellers. I’ve found it helpful reading the blogs of others on a similar journey, and would be grateful to know that someone else might find my ponderings and musings helpful. It amazes me that it is in our struggles and weakness that God shines through to reveal himself and encourage others.

"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us." 2 Cor 4.7 NIV

Welcome to the Journey. You sound a bit like me in terms of background.
Once you come home, you will say "why did I ever leave?"
God bless you and do write if you need any help along the way. There's lots of us reverts and converts out there.

DITTO what TJ said. Welcome! My husband and I returned to the CC after 26 years in the evangelical fray. It's been the most blessed and wonderful experience to my very core and I've not looked back!It's a bumpy ride, but well worth every jolt and jostle! I'll pray for you at Mass this morning. God bless and keep you.
