The CHNetwork Weekly Roundup #079

November 10, 2017 No Comments

Got a question about the Catholic Church, or need assistance on your journey? Consider becoming a member, or feel free to contact us for more information.  The Coming Home Network exists to help converts, reverts, those on the journey, and those who are just curious – we’d love to hear from you!

*****

We just passed 13,000 subscribers on our YouTube Channel!  If you’ve not checked it out, there are plenty of Signposts, Deep in History talks, and much more to browse and share. Visit us at youtube.com/cominghomenetwork.

This week’s Journey Home episode was a gripping conversation with Sr. Miriam James Heidland, S.O.L.T.,  who shared her path out of addiction and depression, and into religious life.

Our newest Signposts video short features Chris Reibold, a lapsed Catholic screenwriter who was drawn back to the Church by the stories of the saints.

In his latest article on the CHNetwork Blog, Ken Hensley argues that an atheist worldview that believes everything evolved by chance can’t account for human free will.

We published the latest in Dr. Norman McCrummen’s series, “Twelve Reasons a Protestant Pastor Became Catholic.” In Reason Nine, he explains how reading good books led him to the Catholic Church, and even gives an impressive list of some of the titles that were most helpful to him.

A convert trying to explain her newfound faith to both her parents and her children, a journeyer going through the annulment process, and an inquirer trying to decide if this is the year to join RCIA – these are just a few examples of the people we are working with this month at The Coming Home Network International.
