2023 Retreat- Pheba Banerjee
From Faith to Faith to Faith
Pheba Banerjee As a 16-year-old teenager in India, Pheba met a Catholic friend, which sparked in her the desire to know about Christianity. She came across a Gideon Bible and started reading it. In her own words, “I initially thought that Christ was just another one of the gurus but later, through reading the Book of Romans, I came to realize the folly of idol worship, the religious/caste system of Hinduism, and my personal sins.”
The story of her faith journey as a teenager in India with Hindu culture all around her, including her own family of origin, to a strong faith in Jesus Christ, plus her youthful spark are a total inspiration. She is currently the Director of Pastoral Care at The Sanctuary in Bryan, Ohio, where she and her husband have been sharing the love of Christ with the homeless in a practical way for about two years.
