New Evangelizers: What are you waiting for?

“Shalom Festival 2014: Fear not, for I am with you,” was the theme of the one-day conference. A suburban Catholic high school honoring St. John Paul II, the great lover of evangelization, was the ideal location for this program promoting conversion.

The promoters of the Shalom Festival visited our prayer meeting on the other side of the metroplex a month earlier. They gave me a ticket because I write columns for their slick magazine, “Shalom Tidings.” I wanted to meet my email contact to the magazine. Besides, I love a good, rousing conference with inspiring speakers telling their stories of miracles, healings and conversions. And I knew some of my friends would come.

  1. I love that reminder that we should be aglow with faith and joy. What a beautiful theme for the conference.

      Yes, and a reminder that there are opportunities all around us for renewing our faith by joining with others who are aglow with faith and joy and wanting to share it with us.
