Lets get this started: My conversion story, Part 1
Conversion. What is it and why do we need it? In this introductory hub I will do my best to try and explain exactly that. First, however, I should tell you all a little bit about me. My name is Marcia and I live in Lincoln, NE in the US. I'm 38, not married and no kids (unless you count my friends but that is a completely different topic, forgive me for digressing). I had a conversion experience of my own back in the fall of 2000 when after a long absence, i returned to the practice of my faith in the Catholic Church. I will not in this or any future hub, bash anyone of any other faith, Christian or not. You are welcome to disagree, that is perfectly fine; however, Catholicism will be my focus. In this hub I wanted to give you (whoever might be reading this) a little introduction of who I am and what I am about. Future hubs will cover my conversion story and various aspects of the Catholic faith, i.e. pilgrimage; struggles in the spiritual life; suffering and what it means for all of us; the sacraments; saints and so on. Many of these topics are misunderstood; hopefully I will be able to shed some light and information along with a little humor at the same time. Until next time, may God Bless you, dear reader, and keep you safe.
