Delving Deep In History Brought Me Home

The Coming Home Network International recently published an abbreviated version of my conversion story in their monthly newsletter and online at their website. I decided to reproduce the article in it’s entirety here along with a PDF of the full newsletter at the bottom of the article. Enjoy! Delving Deep In History Brought Me Home We’ve all heard the maxim, “Your starting point always…

Miracles

Can Miracles Be (Dis)Proven?

Catholic Canonizations With Mother Teresa’s recent canonization and elevation to Saint Teresa of Calcutta, I’ve had quite a few friends and family members asking me how exactly the Catholic Church goes about making someone a saint. In answering that question, there are a couple of important distinctions which must be made. The first distinction that we should make is that the Catholic Church…

An Integration of Church and State

I don’t often post political pieces. In fact, this may be a first. But as I sit at my desk writing this, I find myself deeply troubled by our current state of affairs. In our nation, the term, separation of Church and state, has been aggressively employed in an effort to remove any influence of religion or faith from the public sphere. We live…

Straight From The Horse’s Mouth

This oft repeated idiom correctly points out that you are most likely to get the truth – or at least a more accurate version of the event in question – if your information comes from a direct source. In the arena of racetracks, jockeys, and large wagers, it doesn’t get much more direct than the horse himself! In the province of Protestant…

My Catholic Conversion Video Interview

A couple of months back David Gray interviewed me for his My Catholic Conversion segment on the YouTube channel My Catholic Tube. Below I’ve put direct links to his channels so that you can check out some of the other great videos he’s put up there. Just as an FYI, the audio starts a little garbled due to some technical difficulties, but…

The True Church

A friend recommended that I read an article by Sinclair Ferguson titled, “John Calvin on the True Church” – you can click on the title above to read it for yourself if you would like. He also thought that I might have some thoughts regarding the article, and surprise, surprise, I do! To set the stage for you, the article essentially asks the…

An Intimate Union

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.1 The Profound Mystery of Christ’s Union with His Church Of all that Saint Paul ever wrote, this passage has to be one of…
