Hello,
I am the Director of Music Ministries at a United Methodist Church near Nashville, TN. I was raised Lutheran, but I have been interested in Catholic history and theology for a couple decades. My grandmother was Catholic, and my sister-in-law is Catholic, so there's a family connection there, as well as my theological interest.
I am married and have two lovely daughters. I collect Bibles, and my collection is currently somewhere over 200 volumes (it used to be over 300, but I purged my collection recently.)

That's pretty much me in a nutshell. 8-)

Kindest regards,
Cory Howell
Nashville, TN

Hiya, Cory! I’m the board meeting that faithfulservant warned you about. I was raised Methodist and took a circuitous route through a host of SBC, fundamentalist, and evangelical (but NOT pentecostal) churches before converting to Catholicism in 2012. I moved to Nashville 2 years ago and settled in a pretty little Sumner County community.

I gave away my abridged (Protestant) Bibles when I converted, save one: the pulpit Bible used by my great-great grandfather when he was a circuit preacher in the late 1800s. That one is a family heirloom. :fyi:

There are kindred souls here. Just don't mention purging volumes again.

And, Hola!
