Beautiful piece, Agnes. I didn’t grow up with any faith since my parents grew up in Maoist China, and I had an epiphany like yours when I was 20. It was in a time of most need and I just met a lot of great Christians that made me think “huh, there’s something up with this”.

They helped change my life. I’m glad that you’re in changing in a time of desperate need too. Being a Christian has made me much more comfortable being who I am. Perfect people don’t need God, and I’m not perfect by any stretch.

Thank you for the fantastic piece.
