I created this blog as a way to share some of my thoughts on life and faith, and also as a way to share my journey with others. My own journey of faith has been an interesting one thus far. I was blessed to grow up in a very strong Christian family within the Protestant tradition. I have spent my whole life involved in various forms of ministry – attending bible colleges, studying theology, and even serving on the pastoral staff of a local non-denominational church we were attending. Imagine my surprise when I began to investigate the claims of Catholicism and found myself inexorably pulled towards that most ancient of Christian churches, the Catholic Church itself! It is often difficult to describe to others all the individual steps taken along the path which have brought you along the way to where you are today. Many have perhaps misunderstood my decision as a that of leaving behind one thing for something else, when in reality the experience has been one of adding to – not of taking away – of entering into the fullness of the Christian Faith. There have been many who have asked me why I felt that it was necessary to enter into the Catholic Church; and I cannot find a more perfect answer than that of G.K. Chesterton who wrote that,
“The difficulty of explaining ‘why I am a Catholic’ is that there are ten thousand reasons all amounting to one reason: that Catholicism is true.”
I would add that for me, there was also the indescribable joy of finding my home – of coming home to the place where I belong.
