I enjoyed this piece. I came from a religious background myself. Personally, I was self-righteous and when this 30 something lady in blue jeans and long dangling earrings talked to me about being saved, I thought to myself, I’m doing fine, thank you very much. But all she did was share one verse about all the good we’ve done and how it is to God, and then, I wanted to hear what she had to say. And I did. Not only did I hear it, I accepted it. Am I religious now? No. But I have a personal relationship with the Jesus she knew. And I often hear God tell me I am his. Your piece resonated with me.
