Questions for discussions
Here are some great questions Carlene came up with that we could use for email discussion, or discussion in person (whether at a meeting as a group, or meeting individually too). Thanks, Carlene! Carlene's questions - - - If you could teach everyone 3 things about your faith and practices, what would you want those to be? Can people be kicked out/excommunicated from your faith community or have limited access (like being refused Communion, in a Christan church)? What circumstances would lead to that? Once excommunicated, is there a mechanism for people to get back in? What rituals or practices, if any, does your faith community use to welcome new members? What are some of the most important observances/celebrations in your faith tradition throughout the year? How are those observed as a faith community, families, individuals? What do you perceive as the most misunderstood elements of your faith/practice by outsiders?
