…you may be interested in this panel discussion we (Marcus Grodi, Fr. Ray Ryland, Scott Hahn, Yr. Obdt. Svt., and Roy Schoeman) held at the Coming Home Network’s “Deep in History” conference out in Columbus, OH last October. It was a fun conference, full of hundreds of gung ho Catholics (and a few curious Evangelicals) who were there to celebrate Christ and give thanks for what Paul calls “the riches of his inheritance in the saints”. I always feel weird when I get to do one of these things, because I feel totally out of place and outclassed by much better and smarter Catholics than I am. I sit there thinking, “What am I doing here with these guys, like Joe Doaks from the Seattle Pilots sitting next to Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Hank Aaron?” I keep waiting for the moment when somebody looks at me, their eyes focus, and they say, “Who is this intruder? Guards! Seize him!” Fortunately, this time I got away with it, for which I thank Marcus Grodi, whose poor vision allowed me to pass myself off as Jimmy Akin.
By the way, there’s a little glitch in the captioning. I’m not a former Baptist. I’m a former garage band pagan from Wayne’s World who became a former non-denominational Evangelical by finally becoming a Catholic.
