"Can I Say Yes"?

Another wonderful post from Fr. Stephen Freeman today. Especially meaningful for me was this portion:

"The question is not 'Do I need something else?' But rather, 'Can I say Yes to what has been offered to me?'”

And he is right. This is precisely the question. And answering it truthfully is exactly what it came down to for me early last fall, when I decided to become an Orthodox Christian.

In the end, however, the question "Can I say Yes?" became the realization that I could just no longer continue to say "No".

At the risk of freaking you out, "I can no longer say no",is exactly the way I would characterize my conversion.
