‘We speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony.’
John 3: 7-16
My confirmation teacher was always telling me, “Shake a lil leg and clap yuh hand in church”. And I would think, “Wham to she? I eh come here for that”. One day she ask me what was my problem, so ah tell she, “All yuh does look fake!” Soon afterwards, I did my first Life in the Spirit Seminar and me eh know what them people do me… Buh I start clapping and dancing too!
Well is now I feel I is ah best catholic. Yuh know, looking back I realize that finding God didn’t automatically make me a good person. I am still working on my many flaws 30 years later; but it did make me rely more heavily on God for everything.
The best way to describe this experience is from the scriptures, “The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes”.
