Faith Story

Born in a Presbyterian family that had an influence on my personal and spiritual growth. Faith has been mainly shaped by a family experience of suffering, a quest for a balance of rational thinking and spiritual experience, and a quest for the unity of doctrine and life, and a quest of reflection on the unity of the Church.
