I'm a Christian who went to a very strict church as a small child (no makeup or short sleeves or short hair or pants for women!), then we moved and I went to a Baptist church for awhile before we found a Free Methodist Church we liked. I then went to a Wesleyan college, and now go to a Baptist church though I spent a little bit of time visiting a Catholic church with my friend. I think it was a good experience to be able to study the many different types of beliefs and traditions within one religion.
I watched a bit of the interfaith prayer vigil last night until I had to rock my niece to sleep in another room, and I thought it was beautiful how there was Jewish and Muslim songs and prayers and different Christian denominations, Protestant and Catholic and everything in between, all peacefully praying together to comfort the victims' families and the heartbroken and the nation. I wish the world could be like that, everyone getting along and doing there own thing and respecting each other's differences.
