This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a wonderful conversation with Dr. Brian Besong, who returned after 8 years to update his journey and reflect more on his path from Calvinism to Catholicism.

Our newest written story is from Vicki Larson, who shared how studying Theology of the Body was a major factor in her decision to become Catholic.

In the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at more advice from St. Irenaeus about why we shouldn’t do too much speculation when it comes to the mystery of God.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim looked at what Jesus really meant when he talked about being “born again” in John 3.

And on our latest Insights video short, former Baptist pastor Michael Davis shared what happened when he discovered Catholic Social Teaching.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The National Catholic Register interviewed country star Craig Morgan about his conversion to Catholicism.

And with baseball opening this week, we shared conversion stories from a former MLB commissioner, a scout who helped build the 1988 Dodgers, a chaplain to the Chicago Cubs, and a baseball front-office guy whose journey to the Catholic faith began when a Royals player invited him to Mass.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

David Mills shared a couple of memories of the late Protestant theologian J.I. Packer, who passed away this week at age 93; one more personal, and one more theological.

And Jimmy Akin tackled the question of whether or not God changes His mind.

A member interested in returning to the Church and wondering how to proceed, another member preparing to be received into the Church in just a couple of weeks, and all the new Catholics we’re working with who are trying to figure out how to live sacramental lives under COVID-19 restrictions – 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!
