    Yea, I was actually very glad you talked about this in the sermon. It doesn’t matter what your religious persuasion is, everyone has a story. If life change itself is the goal, then it doesn’t matter so much what your story is (although I would argue that from a moral perspective, Christianity is superior).

    The difference between “our” story and “their” story is not that of a changed life so much as it is the foundation of the life change. If our story isn’t rooted in objective reality, then it’s just another ingredient in the stew which is pluralism.

    And while you can’t argue with someone’s experience, you can always argue with their interpretation of that experience. If their experience doesn’t correspond with reality, then it has to be attributed to something else.
