Respect

Hey guys and gals,
Once again, it's been quite a while since I've updated you all.  I've just been thinking a lot lately about how respect works.  We must respect and even learn to appreciate those of other nationalities and religions.  I've had several opportunities to practice and demonstrate this in my everyday life. 

Several weeks ago I visited a mosque, and met other students of Islamic faith in highschool and college.  It was great to meet with them, see that they were just normal teenagers like any of us.  I found that they believed in many similar things as I, a Christian Scientist.  They believed in the Bible, one God, and accepted Jesus as a prophet.  They had strong morals that I really respected, and were looking for peace in prayer just like any of us as well.  It was great to see this, meet a very graceful and beautiful woman.  It's somewhat unfortunate that so many Americans misjudge these wonderful people because of a small few who do something wrong.

Yet again I had a similar opportunity when talking to another Christian, who went to a foursquare church.  There are several differences between their church and our Christian Science church, but yet we could easily relate and even connect.  It came up randomly in conversation, and blossomed into a very comforting conversation.  This way of respect and appreciation really works.  It's what this world needs.  Share it with others.  Love the world.  It's the greatest gift we have.  Love yall.

Love always,
Contemplation's Girl
