just for fun...

I realize we aren't all planning on attending from the original idea (which was a multi faith meet up) but has turned into a lancaster moms meet up.... but I'm still curious which faiths will be represented =) so please share (if you feel comfortable). I think it will be nice to meet other moms from other faiths and denominations!

We're Christian. Anabapists specifically. I grew up "non-denominational christian"... but it wasn't taken too seriously. As an adult my husband and I have foudnd this path on our own. none of our family are Anabapists. thought some are Christian.

Protestant Christian here, specifically Nazarene. I grew up in this denomination, and drug my husband along when we started dating. He grew up in the Episcopal church. Teehee. . .he had a bit of culture shock!

I've been wanting to know more about the Nazarene church. I have heard of it, sure... but don't know really anything about it.

Henny, since you're coming by Lancaster anyways, we can carpool........ wait. How many people do you have? I have a 5 passenger car, and I need a carseat. Will that work?

I'm Jewish. I'm Reform, technically, because my DH won't convert (he doesn't think Christian churches will hire a Jewish organist ), but we live a much more Orthodox life, and probably are more recognizable as Masorti or Modern Orthodox. I guess you guys can make the call for yourself next week, but I think I'm pretty "visibly Jewish," which is usually the mark of Masorti/MO, but not "weirdly Jewish," which the Chassidim/Chabad/Haredi sects tend to be.

How's that for an explanation?

Anabaptist here, specifically Brethren in Christ, although I am currently going to a non-denominational church. However, my husband would consider himself atheist/agnostic. We were both in the same boat when we met, so this life change for me has been quite a change for him as well! We have agreed to raise our children in the church, though.

Look forward to meeting more moms!!

Smeis-

I have a 7 passenger and there will be 3 of us. (the forth is still in my belly so we don't need an extra seat for him so that leaves 4 free seats. 3 for kids and one for an adult. so I could swing by and pick you all up if you need. I forget how many kids you have... and keep in mind I need GOOD directions b/c I am directionally challenged AND new here.

I understood your jewish explanation, don't worry but i did get a kick outta the "weirdly jewish" ha!! am I weirdly Christian? I dunno... I guess it depends who you ask. if you ask my in laws they'd certainly say yes. I am "visibly christian" myself, but everyone in Maryland thought me jewish b/c Christians simply do not cover and wear long dresses in Maryland. it's weird being here and people assuming you're Christian. lol. what a strange change really. I haven't been wished Happy Chanakah eve once yet!! I guess I don't fit in really anywhere... but I am okay with that. I've always been a social rebel heh.

Tiffany,

I'm curious how you found that path without growing up that way. My husband and I did too, but we don't get to talk to a lot of others that came about this on their own
post #56 of 100
i don't think i can go. addie simply screams whenever i put her in the car. and i hate the thought of her screaming for an hour 1 way.. i may try to go anyway.. but she is so new i hate her crying so much.

as for religon, we are catholic.....i grew up catholic, as did dh. i take what i want from the religon.. there are many aspcts i do not believe in...

Henny, I've been asked a few times if I'm Jewish (once by a Jewish man from Israel living in Manhattan and once by a Jewish friend's son). And hubby, based on looks, had a Lebanese coworker INSIST he was Jewish (my husband has black irish in him amoungst other things, so the descent is very probable). Are you beachy?

Don't worry ladies...I'll get together with ya'll another time. We just have A LOT going on here right now.

I'm curious, Smeisnotapirate, is your husband more in line with Judaism and just refusing ot convert or is he a believer in the faith he's active in?

DH was born and raised mainline Presbyterian. According to him, he's only actively involved in Christian churches because it's his job, as organist. He's an incredible organist and builds organs as a day job, but he doesn't believe in the divinity of Jesus and in reality, is very involved with our synagogue and celebrates Shabbat and all the holidays. He's even the stage manager for our Purimspiel every year, and plays piano for us on Friday nights. He says he won't convert because of the Jewish organist thing. That, and his mom would probably freak.

Okay, understand now, thanks!

HennyPenny,

Without getting too in depth, I have been a follower of Jesus only for about 2.5 years. I was searching many different paths at one point, went to a Buddhist meditation, Unitarian, Lutheran church, Episcopal, etc. When we moved to Mechanicsburg a few years ago, I was looking for a church to go to in the evening. I Googled a church in the area and found a Brethren in Christ church that had a Sunday evening service. I went there, things "clicked" for me, and the rest is history! I even got to invite my sister and her now husband there, and they are both committed followers and members now of McBic. I didn't grow up in the church, though, and the few times we went, we went to a local Episcopal church or something similar to that. The anabaptist church is quite a change from my previous experiences! Hubby, on the other hand, grew up sometimes going to a Catholic church, and unfortunately, had some crappy experiences (i.e. being told he was going to hell for listening to a certain kind of music, etc.) Anyway, those left a bad taste in his mouth, so we just keep an open dialogue and respect one another on our own paths. My hope is that I can be the wife that I was meant to be and show him that there are many different 'flavors' of Christians, and not all are condemning to others! God knows exactly what path he is on anyway!

PS. I know his experience is not indicative of all Catholic churches, or Catholics, just his own.
