We published online Part II of Ken Hensley’s ongoing series, A Damning System of Works Righteousness.

Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley, both former Protestant ministers, kicked off a new Deep in Scripture series on the Epistle of St. James, starting by discussing how they used to handle Bible passages that didn’t make sense to them.

And in a great new Insights video short, Jessica Ptomey, a former Evangelical Protestant, shared how she came to understand Catholic teaching on Mary.

A member trying to overcome bad experiences with the Catholic Church as they return to the sacraments, another member looking for local support on their Catholic journey, and all our members who are interested in the Catholic Church but whose spouses aren’t on board – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
