More accumulated varia.

Years ago, I recorded an inexpensive cd of my journey into the Catholic Church because the whole story takes too long to tell in most workshops and seminars and I'd had hundreds of people ask me about it over the years.

Now we have it (The Making of a Bi-Cultural Christian or MBCC for short)

But I've found it hard to talk about the MBCC at events because it feels oddly personal. Discernment or the theology of the laity or evangelization is altogether different but I'm not a personality and this is about me so I tend to mutter something very brief and incoherent with an embarrassed look on my face, if I remember to talk about it at all.

Predictable result: very few people have listened to the cd and I've wondered if it had been worth the trouble to do it at all. Clearly, Scott Hahn or the Coming Home Network doesn't have to worry about any competition from me!

But last weekend, one of our teachers told me that he had found it extremely useful in RCIA. He told me about a young women who was entering the Church from a fundamentalist background but whose parents were very concerned about her decision. He gave her a copy of the cd to take home for Christmas where both she and her parents listened to it. Mark told me that she returned from the holidays in a much more peaceful place because her parents were more comfortable with her decision as a result of listening to the cd.

So I'm passing it on. Got RCIA candidates from an evangelical background? Pick up a copy of The Making of a Bi-Cultural Christian (at $5/cd, how can you lose? We're nothing if not cheap.) and let them listen to it.

The CD includes the story of what I call the "Advent of the three miracles". Mark Shea and I were survivors of three bad RCIAs and graduates of none, it was nearly Christmas, a tragically abused baby was dying, and the Holy Spirit was on the move.

It is encouraging to think that God can use our story to help others make the same journey.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
