I am Protestant. But I am a non-practicing Protestant who hasn’t touched a Bible for years… and I attended a church I scoff at (bad, I know - their beliefs are quite contrary to my own but I’ve been content to just tolerate the differences for some time). This past weekend I felt compelled to open the Bible. I read one verse and was confronted with a truly extraordinary, life-altering experience that reminded me the spiritual world is VERY real.
It was a frightening experience, really… one that has left me unable to sleep. Unable to function like I did before. I feel like I just fell off the wrong path but I can’t quite figure out where the right one is so I’m in the ditch and it’s too dark to climb out.
I know that I need to be in communion with God. I feel compelled to seek the Catholic church and its teachings… the problem is I don’t know where to start.
How do I learn about the teachings of the Church? There’s so much information and doctrine that I have no clue where I should begin my journey. I’ve been browsing the net and even these forums but there’s so much that I’m feeling overwhelmed.
My question is this: HOW do I begin the process of conversion when I can’t attend church at this time??
I apologize if this question has been asked before… I tried a search but like I said I’m kind of in overload right now and I need a tiny bit of hand holding - I’m ashamed to say. Haha. This has been a very humbling time for me…
