A Living Testimony
My wife and I came from a primarily Baptist and Methodist background. When my wife and I
married and with the arrival our first child we felt an obligation to raise this child in
a Christian upbringing. So out of duty we started shopping for churches. My wife Suzanne
was very close to her Aunt and Uncle who were Catholic. He was a medical doctor who was
educated at a Catholic Seminary, he went into the Army during World War II and married
Sue's Aunt. He was a marvelous man and a great influence on my wife and I. He invited me
to "shop" the Catholic Church. At my first mass I actually fell over "Uncle
Doc" when he stopped to kneel before the Lord in the main aisle. My first experience
was good however, because in the church were people who were on their knees worshipping
God "as if" He were right there with them, and of course He was. No long
sermons, not a very "entertaining" service but so respectful.. At first, I
thought the people were not too friendly, but then realized that when they were in the
presence of God their focus was on Him. I liked it! So we started our instructions at the
Catholic student center at Michigan State University.
A few years later, I attended a Catholic "Cursillo" weekend. (An encounter
weekend that really tells you how to live the faith.) It rattled my cage and I was, as the
scriptures say, "born again".
Now I am a music leader at church, song writer and play 12 string acoustic guitar and
specialize in retreat weekends for our Catholic faith and many interdenominational types
also. They just love to get hold of a Catholic. And I love them too.
My walk with the Lord has been for 40 years now and it is good!
In God's love,
