Led by the Good Shepherd to the Catholic Church – Conversion Story of Ed Hopkins

June 3, 2013 | 7 responses

May 13, 2011 | no responses

The thirteen years my husband, Ray, served as an Episcopal priest were exciting, fulfilling years. We had both come from a Disciples of Christ background, and we found the intellectual and liturgical ethos of the Episcopal Church very satisfying. But questions arose: Who was right? Which were the teachings faithful to the Gospel? Who was to say which teachings were true or false? Where was the locus of authority?
