Contemplating the Moments of Conversion in our Lives
The Faith Connections event on Nov. 4, "Called to Conversion and Service," was an evening filled with stories, song and time to contemplate the moments of conversion that have occurred in our lives. The guest speaker, Rob Shearer, shared with us his personal journey in faith. In particular he talked about some key moments or turning points that have led him on a life of rich experience. Accompanying Rob was the wonderfully talented Julia who played guitar and sang some well-selected songs that complemented Rob's stories. These ranged from Leonard Cohen, to U2, and even a beautiful song (Fisherman's Waltz) that Julia has written. After some time for personal reflection, we were able to share with a smaller group some of our own moments of conversion or calls to service.
