|What Would Jesus Do?|
Feb. 7th, 2013 at 2:57 pm
A few of the sisters in my ward are participating in a women’s interfaith prayer group and discussion. I haven’t gone yet but it sounds interesting. While I was growing up I got the message it was dangerous to mix with other churches.
I notice our church doesn’t seem to participate in formal interfaith councils, at least not in a way that I would know about. I’ve never heard anyone report in ward council meetings about attending interfaith meetings. I haven’t ever heard of a Bishop or Stake President speaking at a meeting or seen anyone given a calling to officially represent the LDS church at interfaith events.
I have a sister-in-law who’s current calling is assistant to the Public Relations person in her area. They seem to bake a lot of goodies for city council members. She hasn’t said they do anything with other churches.
Today I read this story online :
and felt nothing but sad. The pastor was acting in a way that I think was respectful and sincere. I am sorry he has to apologize for doing good.
