Borg begins the second chapter (“Faith is a Journey”) of Convictions with these words:
The story of my life and my Christian journey is about memories, conversions, and convictions. Memories: of what I absorbed growing up. Conversions: major changes in my understanding of the Bible and God and Jesus and what it means to be Christian. Convictions: the affirmations that have flowed from those changes (p.19).
Share one of the memories, conversions, or convictions that has shaped your current faith perspective.Tweet
