I was raised Southern Baptist, but converted to Catholicism three years ago.
What I love the most about my Protestant upbringing was:
*The preaching! **Southern Baptist preachers can give some amazing sermons!
**The music! * I still love to listen to contemporary Christian music. Through listening to some of the best modern Christian songs on the radio, it becomes obvious that there are more that unites us than divides us as Christian brethren.
What about you? What were your Protestant roots and what do you still love about them, despite your conversion?
And for Protestants, what do you love that is distinctive to Protestantism or to your particular denomination?
I'm Lutheran now, but ended up here by way of Baptist/NonDenom/Reformed and I agree with both of your points, except the music I liked were the good'ol hymns. But even some old hymns to new tunes as well. The fellowship at church before and after the service was always nice. And for the Baptists I heard and hung out with, they loved Jesus, and I really appreciated that attitude.
Not to derail, but curious how you went about your journey and ended up Catholic. PM me if you have time and don't want to put it in thread.
