I enjoyed reading your post. I also feel strongly that interfaith events is an important step for any Christian. There are so many churches with so many perspectives. Whenever I seek to understand and empathize with others, I begin to understand more about who God is, why Jesus did what he did, and why he loves us. It also strengthens my own understanding and testimony of Christ. I also like your emphasis on our need for community. Isn’t it interesting how the Lord mentions repeatedly in the Old Testament that he will “gather” His people in the last days? Gathering indicates the importance for us to be unified in one body of Christ. The more we come together as Christians, the more power we’ll have.
