  • Coming home to Jesus and not a denomination

    A while ago someone sent me a newsletter from The Coming Home Network International.
    Attached was a note that read: “Mrs. Kennedy, I understand you are a lapsed Catholic. If so, you may find this (newsletter) of interest. Why not return to our Mother Church?”
    It was signed, “a friend.”
    In the newsletter, a woman who had grown up as a Catholic wrote about meeting some evangelical Protestants, including the man she eventually married, and spent 20 years attending Protestant churches before returning to the Catholic Church.
