Easter Three - Conversion is a Process

This week we have two amazing stories: Paul’s conversion and Peter’s encounter with the risen Jesus and their conversation. (RCL Acts 9:1-20; Psalm 30; Revelation 5:6-14; and John 21:1-19) Both these stories can lead us to reflect on the nature of conversion or spiritual transformation. Too often we speak of conversion as though it was a single event of decision making rather than a process of deeper and deeper conviction and connection with the divine and our own true natures, a transformation over time and distance.
