Bob was interesting, although, to be honest, his important message for us to know more about other world religions is less important in a place like Du Bois, PA than perhaps a metro area like DC or NYC.

In any case, you can learn more about Bob here.

My important take-away is that the geographical boundaries that used to define religions’ spheres of influence no longer do. It is a little unsettling to think that certain non-Christian religions are growing in the West and Christianity, which has long been seen as a “western” religion (but it really isn’t… only our American-ized version of it currently is), is growing in places like Africa and Indonesia and all over the global South.

Share Jesus, not American Christianity! Jesus came to change the world through the church… and that’s us!
