A friend has been struggling with his faith. He grew up as a solid Christian in the Assembly of God tradition, but something went awry as he matured. He tried a number of other denominations but none seemed to fit. He even tried to start his own house church. The other day he made his confession; he is studying to become a Roman Catholic. Why? It’s pretty simple. His most trusted friends and colleagues have been richly nourished by God’s word in their local parish, and they have invited him to be nourished as they have been in companionship with them. That’s what evangelism is about. It’s as simple as that. There ain’t no more!

beautiful. so many are drawn to the catholic faith these days. there is something to faithfulness and consistency. something to knowing what you\’re going to get. something to showing up for mystery rather than a show.
\”His most trusted friends and colleagues have been richly nourished by God\’s word in their local parish, and they have invited him to be nourished as they have been in companionship with them.\” i\’m not sure that has anything to do with the particular faith tradition…but does it really matter? the gospel shows up in the most surprising ways if we are open to the \”mystery\” as MD mentioned.peace!
