Searching for truth, I found goodness and beauty too


This blog tells how an anti-Catholic Protestant found himself in the Catholic Church.  I’ve learned a few things along the way and want to share them:

1. No one is too far gone.  God loves us more than we can imagine.  His amazing grace and new-every-morning mercy mean we all have hope in Jesus Christ.

2. As followers of Jesus, none of us should hide the flame under a basket.  Since being received into the Catholic Church on September 10, 2017, I have wanted to share my faith more than ever.  If you’ve never had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, please keep reading.  If you have had such an encounter, but you are like I was – hostile (or even indifferent) toward the Catholic Church, please keep reading.  If you happen to read anything in this blog with merit, please share it with your friends on social media.  That’s one way to let your light shine.

3. We’re all in this together.  So tell your story.  Someone needs to hear about your journey of faith.  That’s what I’m doing here.  Read something here that helps you?  Leave a note and encourage me.

4. We belong in communion with the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.  As the  truth claims of the Catholic Church became evident to me, goodness and beauty became part of the package.  From my prior vantage point as an anti-Catholic  rock-thrower, I could never see that.  Now, I’m constantly amazed, as if I had discovered something new.  Only it’s about 2,000 years old.

This blog started as a letter to my former Protestant pastor, then expanded as I wrote to others.  The division in the Body of Christ is long and complicated.  A lot gets tangled up in two millennia of messy Church history.  It takes a lot of words.  Sound bites won’t do the trick.

I am the husband of a wonderful wife and proud father of two sons.  During the day, I’m a lawyer in Alabama and Mississippi, usually defending civil lawsuits.

Thank you for reading.
