    It was a nice post and I am mostly (lol) an athiest. Has anyone else read the book "Atonement" or seen the movie? I think I see a lot if that in some nurses. Using this as an atonement for something else and this post really enforced that for me.

    One thing we miss out on is the privilege of praying for someone when asked regardless of their faith, when we refuse because their faith is not of our own. I remember one time a Muslim friend asking me (a Christian) to pray for her sick mother. It was a privilege and I hope she felt loved in that process. Thankfully, her mom recovered from her illness.

    i got scared at first thinking i was going to taste a lot of haterade on here, but thank you all for saying the nice things you did. :-)

    my mom is atheist/agnostic and my hubby is agnostic/questioning as well....both are good people and seem to abide by the religion of being a good person and letting others "do their own thing".

    I love your post, and fully agree! (and, next time there is a BAD "code brown", I will think of your post....LOL!) But seriously, there have been soooooo many times I have driven home after a difficult shift and just thanked God over and over for getting me through it, and also for keeping me GOING BACK even though I swear I'm going to work at McDonald's sometimes!

    I also thanked the Good Lord mannny, mannnny times for getting me through nursing school --especially the dreaded GROUP PROJECTS that *always* include the lazy people who don't contribute a THING !!!!!

    I've also driven to work many times literally saying out loud one of my favorite verses...." I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" ---Philipians 4:13

    I think it's brilliant that someone can share their faith in an unoffensive way. Keep up the good work.

    That is sort of Jesus message in terms of everyday conduct. We as believers, should hold our brothers and sisters in faith accountable for our Christian conduct when we are in a faith community. Apart from that, we are not judges and should not behave as such. All very much in my opinion.

    I very much enjoyed your post.

    Having the Word in our hearts to put on our tongue in an instant is a powerful tool.
    One that I do not often enough employ.

    Made me think of Hebrews 4:12...
    For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    i agree with you, nurseme.
    it is an uncommon occurrence when a religious person can be embracing and inclusive of all folks...
    without trying to incorporate their own personal beliefs.
    that is why i enjoyed this thread...
    as it seemed most posters were celebratory of the unity op created, when recognizing all of us as complementary to one another.
    it was a lovely feeling while it lasted.

    thanks again, op.
