Conversion, Art, and Christ Found in the Least — with Rakhi McCormick
Season 4, Episode 19 | Originally aired on April 26, 2022
“I’d been searching in all different faiths. I think then it was very much an encounter with Christ in the least, with the explanation especially from this young man.”
Rakhi McCormick’s journey to the Catholic faith was one of continual encounter. She was raised Hindu in a small town, and for much of her life she sought out belonging and identity. Through various points of encounter, she met Jesus in different people and experiences. Rakhi entered the Catholic Church as a young adult, and now walks with other people through a variety of ministries that she serves. In this episode, Rakhi shares her story of conversion, how she started using her art to serve God, and what it means to encounter Christ in the least.
