From Hindu to Baha’i to Christian

Guess I’m not the only one. Here’s a Hindu woman who embraced the Baha’i Faith, and five years later resigned and became a Christian. She is now a member of the Orthodox Church.

Here is her story. For a blog post, it is exceedingly long (15 type-written pages), but well worth reading. I am amazed at how similar her experience was to mine (except I came from an agnostic background instead of Hindu). Her attraction to the Faith, her puzzlement at the contradictions, and her experience with Protestantism are all similar to my own, and what she says about Eastern Orthodoxy is how I feel about Catholicism.

Two bloggers, Crunchy Con and Wholly Roamin’ Catholic, comment on the story.

My thanks to Steve Marshall for the nice tip.

Catholicism on Jesus and God

I’ve never heard of Eckhart Tolle, but the priest’s comments are useful beyond just commenting on Tolle’s book. He provides a good sense of where Catholics are coming from in regard to the Western world’s prevailing spirituality.
