Methodist Pastor Allen Hunt Begins the Swim
As exciting and validating as it is for us to see so many pastors Crossing the Tiber, we need to keep in mind the tremendous loss this engenders for these brothers in Christ. Please keep them in prayer as they put themselves and their families in financial jeopardy by their decision to leave and lose everything they have built to follow Jesus into the Catholic Church. At this rate, the Journey Home program may need to expand to two nights per week to accommodate all of these new river crossings.
"After much prayer and meditation over the past six months, I have shared with Bishop Lindsey Davis that I am relinquishing my status as an ordained United Methodist pastor in the North Georgia Conference. This deeply personal decision reflects my sense that God has called me to serve in a new mission role. Moreover, I believe that God has led me to a new spiritual home in the Catholic Church, so I have made provision to be received as a member into that Church."
