My Father is Very Religious
Dear Brother Ron
I believe this is an important event your father wants to
share with you. You should grant him the pleasure of doing so. Before going,
however, you should have a clear understanding between the two of you that
your attendance will not change your beliefs and he should not expect this.
If that understanding can not be reached, you should not go.
I believe accompanying your father will accomplish one important goal-you will have a better understanding of what your father believes and why he believes that way. You could also make it a reciprocal deal. You will accompany him to his church if he accompanies you to yours. He needs to understand you as much as you need to understand him.
Of course I am assuming that you have a church affiliation.
If not, that may be the problem. Your father may not want to convert you to
his belief as much as he wants to make sure you have a religious affiliation
of some sort. Besides, it's much harder to refute your father's religious
advances if you can not offer a viable alternative.
