Opening closed doors

The first time I went to an interfaith event, an all-day, all-city women’s interfaith conference, the chairperson saw my name tag with “Christian Science” on it for my faith tradition, and was astonished. She said: “We’ve never had someone from the Christian Science church here before. I thought your church didn’t allow you to do interfaith work.”

I was astonished at her astonishment! Although I’d never been to an interfaith activity before, I assured her that Christian Scientists are completely free to participate. I felt a calling then and there to become active in the interfaith community.
