I LOVE CONVERSION NARRATIVES

 

A regular reader of Abyssum sent me an email this morning from which I have copied the excerpt shown below.  I watched the video and just as my friend warned me I was turned off by her mannerisms.  At first I was also distracted by the way she had color streaked her hair and her constant playing with her hair.  But what she had to say in telling her conversion narrative was so wonderful that watched the whole video.

If you have children or grandchildren between the ages of 12 and 22 I urge you to gently persuade them to watch this YouTube video on their cellphone somewhere where they will not be interrupted; it is thought provoking and they need to feel that she is talking to them without being interrupted by anyone else.

Lizzie posted her video on YouTube this morning and already it has had 3240 views.

INCLUDED IN THIS EMAIL DISTRIBUTION TO FRIENDS IS A BISHOP, A PRIEST, A DEACON, A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER, YOUTH MINISTERS, A PERSON IN RCIA, A FEW DEVOUT LAY CATHOLICS (ONE LIVING IN EUROPE WITH HER HUBBY AND KIDS), AND ONE PROTESTANT. I HOPE YOU DON’T THINK I’M TOTALLY WEIRD TO FORWARD THIS VIDEO TO YOU BECAUSE IT IS VERY UNUSUAL
 
IT IS THE SECOND HALF OF A VIDEO OF A 23-YEAR OLD CONVERT. HER MANNERISMS AND WAY OF SPEAKING ARE OF THE VERY YOUNG SO SHE CAN BE ANNOYING (TO ME). HOWEVER, SHE IS OFF THE CHARTS BRIGHT AND DID HER HOMEWORK BEFORE CONVERTING. IF YOU STICK WITH THE VIDEO, YOU WILL DISCOVER A  WELL-THOUGHT OUT, WELL-EXPLORED CONVERSION. AFTER A WHILE I MOVED AWAY FROM FOCUSING ON HER PLAYING WITH HER HAIR, AND THE SING-SONG WAY YOUTH SPEAK, TO LISTENING TO HER REASONS FOR CHOOSING CATHOLICISM. GREAT EVANGELIZING TOOL FOR YOUNG PEOPLE!
