The Christian Noob (n00b)

born & raised Catholic, now going to a Presbyterian church & still learning

friends from other books

As a continuation of https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/07/friends-from-afar/ I wanted to emphasize that distance doesn’t always mean geographical position of two object or persons.

After living abroad about one third of my life and living in NYC for the other two thirds, not all my friends are Christian of whatever denomination.

For example, my friends I-An and I-Chun (sisters) are Buddhist.

Coto is atheist or so he calls himself. After all, his wife is Christian (Catholic perhaps).

Julian is non-practicing Jew and married to a non-practicing Christian.

Several of my friends are Muslim. As a matter of fact, my friend Leia converted to Islam after spending most of her life as a Christian.

Of course, many are Christian although they don’t practice their faith. If they do, it might be limited to several times a year.

After a while, religion is not too important when making friends for life. Nonetheless I must admit that some (if not all) the friends whom I’ve made in church might be my friends for the rest our lives.
