"Accepting Grace: The Conversion of St. Paul"

Conversion of St. Paul.17
Galatians 1:11-24
The Rev. Melanie McCarley

Today we celebrate the namesake of our parish: St. Paul—specifically, his conversion. In his letter to the Galatians he writes: “You have heard, no doubt, of my earlier life in Judaism. I was violently persecuting the church of God and was trying to destroy it. I advanced in Judaism beyond many among my people of the same age, for I was far more zealous for the traditions of my ancestors.”
