Ah communication with other religions.

The sweet and the bitter.

One of our best friends happen to be Christian. We play with them at least once a week and if I had to guess I would say they are pretty much best buds. They are starting a coop preschool which sound really fun. It would be twice a week and each month the Dads would also take the kids out on Saturday for a Father/ Kid activity. My friend J told us that of course she would love for us to be part of this but it will be Christian based.

We talked more about it and She said that they would be spending about 25% of the time teaching Christianity. In the end of course I had to say no. I don’t mind teaching my kid about religions but as we are not going to be teaching about my chosen faith side by side their chosen faith it just wont work. J was sad about this and I was too. She said she had to think more about it.

Several times throughout the morning she would bring it up that it is sad that religion is so divisive. She said she feel like when you say you’re a Christian even if you’re not saying “you’re wrong” out loud your still saying “I’m right this the one true faith and so you are wrong” and that made her very thoughtful and sort of sad. We talked about the “pagan view” which I told her I couldn’t really say as there are so many types of pagans. My personal belief is that everyone has their own path to walk, and what is right for one may or may not be right for someone else.

In the end I am sad we wont be able to participate in what I am sure will be a wonderful co-op but I am happy that I have such a dear sweet friend who I can have open and honest communication with about something so deep seeded and personal.

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
