Don Brey: Former Methodist/Episcopalian

August 27, 2012 No Comments

It was the great hymns and potluck suppers that Don Brey remembers best about his days growing up in the Methodist tradition, not necessarily the church doctrines.  Don credits his parent’s lived-out faith for his commitment to integrity and truth.  Still, it was not until college that Don encountered the living Christ.  Becoming active in evangelical groups while at Ohio Wesleyan University and Yale Law School, shaped Don in his future profession.  It also led him from the Methodist Church into the Episcopal Church where he was active for sixteen years.  Ultimately, in his eyes, it was being immersed in the Church Fathers and seeing the evolving trajectory of the Episcopal Church away from the teachings of Christ, that brought Don into the Catholic Church.
