A Lay Evangeliser's Faith Story
“A faith journey may be personal, an extended personal testimony if you like, something we always encouraged potential evangelisers to develop before we taught the faith - sharing basics. Testimonies help to build relationships, by making the person sharing vulnerable, open to understanding and if need be, to criticism.”
Lay evangeliser Mike Weldon charts his life journey through his Catholic faith in this frank and honest work of faith introspection.
He takes us rom his “bog Irish” education at a Catholic boarding school, through years “in the desert” of a secular life outside of the faith through the “decadent 60s” and 70s, an almost accidental re-discovery of his faith, and his experiences as a lay evangeliser in the Charismatic movement, Life in the Spirit Seminars and Alpha.
Many “Baby Boom” Catholics will relate to Mike’s experiences and his journey of discernment and discovery.
