Kellah went out sharing her Christian faith and encountered a Baha'i, among others.
Awesome day. Began with service with Mandy, Hiruy, and Eric. Ended up in the absolute weirdest neighborhood EVER. Almost everyone answered their doors. Most memorable ones:
-Met a guy with the Baha'i faith (or is it B'ahai?). Anyway, very very interesting. He stopped to share with us his beliefs, and we lightly compared and contrasted. Well, there wasn't much contrasting, as he believes that all religions are correct and are founded with God--including Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.
-Ran into another guy as he was on his way out. Said he was very interested and hadn't been to church in a long time, and invited me to come back.
-A man drove by us as we were about to go take a break and asked what we were doing. Eric took it and ended up talking to this guy for about 20 minutes. At first we were really excited because he knew the Bible well and wanted to know our beliefs. Then it turned into a pointless debate. The guy kept running himself into cicles about the Trinity digging his own hole. It finally wrapped up... we were all pretty disappointed. The guy was trying to minister to us, as Eric was to him. I think he was a youth pastor, or something.
-Eric and I went to this door that he took with a guy whom I'm pretty sure is an idiot savant. The craziest conversation EVER ensued. Seriously. I can't even begin to remember all of it, except for his emphasis on his pessimism. He freaked out when Eric told him to have a good day and said not to use the "G" word. Oh man. I was cracking up the entire time.
