Ponder: How do we treat others with different beliefs or no beliefs?

Pray: God, we know many of our friends understand faith differently. Because of their sense of reasoning or their painful past, faith, religion and church are not part of their lives. Instead of pushing dogma and Bible scriptures on them, let us love them as you love us: just as we are. May we find common ground – whether it be serving our communities, listening to U2 or playing Apples to Apples. Amen.

About 25 years ago now, as a newly ordained pastor serving a small country church in Kentucky, I thought we should have a special service on All Saints Day, although it wasn't their custom to do so. I planned and promoted it for weeks.

Dear Theo,
I have been attending a new church. I love the worship, and the people are nice enough, but I am having a hard time getting past the surface and finding real friends. As an introvert, coffee hour terrifies me. When I do manage to go, I only make it about 10 feet into the parish hall, and give it about five wrenching minutes before I flee. It pains me to see all those people laughing and having fun, and having to feel on the outside of things.

Got life problems? Got God problems? Ask Dear Theo.
The Spiritual 8-ball is just like the Magic-8 ball, except the answers you will receive are actual verses from scripture! Type your question into the space below, pray over it, then hit the "Ask" button. Of course, this is simply a game, and we don’t recommend buying your lottery tickets based on the answers you receive. We do, however, believe that if you ask, “it will be given to you; search, and you will find" (Luke 11:9)! So go ahead – type in your question and hit “Ask a Question”!
