Welcome to gandalfsbeardblog. I write from a Roman Catholic Christian perspective.
I converted to Roman Catholicism from an evangelical Protestant background. During my senior year in college, the evangelical Protestant mindset that sustained me for most of my life dramatically crumbled. My experiences compelled me to widen the range of traditions that I was willing to consider.
Eventually, I began to investigate Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism, ultimately opting for the latter. In the Roman Catholic Church, I have experienced a strong sense that Christ is present to me in ways that are new for me, but really very old. What else should we expect from Him who said, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20)?
