I am really struck by “it is Jesus I come home to at night”. Powerful words. I think it is being grounded in one’s faith as one of our other members said earlier. We can learn from other faiths and can explore however what are the beliefs that keep us grounded. When one is grounded in their faith, I think it makes it easier to be open to learn about others. At least it is for me. I am not so afraid to learn about the Buddhist faith for example as I know I will never leave mine for it. I can embrace aspects of it without leaving mine.
I know this may not be a good analogy, but it is like trying new foods from another cultural. I am American however I like to try foods from other cultures. I probably will never truly embrace another cultural foods however I might add one of 2 to make my dining experience more fruitful.
