Mitchell,

Thanks for sharing your friend’s experience. I can’t imagine what it’s like to convert to Christianity and face the reactions of pain from your family. It also seems just as difficult to walk into a Christian community with a Jewish heritage.

I think you are right that a response of empathy is essential. A Christ-like love of neighbor demands a response of love.
I’ll be praying for your friend!
