I observed the discussion in the previous few threads which seem to some how get stuck into whether it is acceptable to have religious discussions at work. I don't think anyone really cares about religious discussion it is when one is doing so in order to spread their faith or convert that it becomes an issue. It itself, I hardly see it as being bad. However, I'm sure everyone can agree that there are methods and times that are appropriate and times where, though they may be legally allowed, it is entirely unwelcome. Personally I don't want to be preached out of the blue. If someone want to really show me their faith, I would firstmost want it to be from a friend, someone who has taken the time to know me. I will not accept solicitation of faith from a stranger. Since faith relies so much on trust, one can see how it is a reasonable requisite. Judging my actions and all I do wrong according to one's own moral code isn't really welcoming, however inviting me to one's church, place of worship or activity is. In addition, knowing when to accept no as an answer and thus providing patience in what is admittingly a tough subject is appreciated. Lastly, the best possible way to show me their faith is to be a model of one's faith. I have been duely impressed in my lifetime by people who walk-the-walk firstly, and talk-the-talk secondly. Going along with this, I have also been impressed with people who still keep an open mind on other people's faith. While that doesn't mean accepting or even liking other people's faith, it can help having civil and enjoyable spiritual discussions. Legally, I'm sure it's possible to preach or be preached at almost anywhere at anytime and I certainly would never suggest changing that. However, given the goal of spreading's one faith, it would be reasonable to ask that it be done in a manner that is welcoming to those outside the faith. What do you people think?
