I am a believer in meeting someone half way when they seek to build a bridge of understanding. Yes everyone carries a level of guarded optimism in the process but others carry some hurt and pain. Spreading goodwill among men and peace on Earth are things that should be universally embraced. Religion as imperfect as it is has been there to help people from all walks of life in all sorts of ways. As a believer I want to share my faith in a way that is informative and non-threatening. Faith is not a bad thing, it really isn’t. A lack of faith is not a character flaw, its a conscious choice. I hope I have made sense here.
