I have recently converted to a Lutheran Church from a lifetime of being raised Catholic. What advice do you have for a young man to survive the transition?
If the transition is difficult, Nikolas, slip away and join us Episcopalians for a Sunday or two. There are Anglican-Catholic churches where high Mass is celebrated with smoke and bells and plenty of bowing and genuflecting, and any good Lutheran can attend in good conscience. Christian soldiers can move from one regiment to another. I'm an old fundamentalist who turned Episcopalian and last Sunday I went to a high Anglican service in Baltimore and even (shocking as this may seem) said the rosary along with all the others. A first for me. It's a life of adventure.
