It was not a decision I entered into lightly, after all as a protestant minister this decision amounts to essentially walking away from my career up to this point as well as any financial stability for my family for the foreseeable future.
“For the last six years you all have been a great support to me with your comments and challenges as I struggled through many of the questions of faith that have brought me to this point. Many of you have walked beside me even longer, and for that I am eternally grateful.
I thought I owed it to you all to talk about why I am joining the Catholic Church and what this means, and does not mean, for my future. I would love to hear your thoughts and concerns about this so please leave your comments below (in the Combox on his website). I treasure all of you…..”
Billy “flirted” with the Eastern Orthodox churches on his journey, as did I. And like me had to conclude that the Catholic Church was the true church founded by Christ and that the Orthodox churches had become a schism.
It is a short read, well-written, interesting, encouraging, informative and you will be the better for having read it.
Enjoy the story and leave him a note of welcome on his blog :-)
