New Word for Word Episode: Conversion

November 4, 2010
We all have our stories: about where we’ve been, where we are, and how we got there. The stories of our life journeys are fascinating and help piece together the puzzle of God’s work and his plan for our lives. And to hear Paul Quist tell his story is to be convicted by the hand of God in all of this.
Quist is interviewed in the Writer’s Block segment of our newest episode of Word for Word, as well as a contributor in this week’s featured book, Chosen, edited by Donna Steichen. And, without giving too much of the story away, the former Lutheran pastor compares his family’s journey to the Catholic Church as a movement away from the enchantment of a campfire toward the comforts of home.
With a sincere love for the Church, Quist echoes the sentiments of the other 22 contributors in Steichen’s book, Chosen, and the conversation and reflections may cause you to consider your own story of where God has placed you and why. The answers you come up with will, no doubt, move you.
Word for Word airs Friday Nov. 5th at 9 pm ET only on Salt + Light Television.
