What we have in common

IN MY TOWN OF EL BOLSÓN, many people attend Christian churches of different denominations. Though we do not all share the same religious tenets or doctrinal points, I've been trying to focus on the many things that we have in common as children of God.

I work in a Christian Science Reading Room, where I have lots of opportunities to meet people who hold different views about religion. Universal brotherhood is at the center of Christian teachings, and I'm grateful for these opportunities to express fellowship.

Once, two people who were proselytizing for their church entered the Reading Room and asked, "Do you think sickness can be healed?" They handed me some literature and talked about their church. I heard them in silence. Though I disagreed with some of their apocalyptic statements, I was reluctant to contradict them because I felt they were sharing what they believed was best for me.
