They way I like to put it is: when I pray in lodge, it is a personal prayer from me to the god of my faith
. The brother standing next to me is
just as solemnly praying to the god of his faith
. Nobody is saying they're the same god. Nobody is saying they're different gods. Who are we,
mere mortals, to know the true nature of God? So we agree to stand side by side, working together in harmony for the good of mankind, and not bicker
about what to call God.
Put another way, I'm secure enough in my faith that I can pray in the same room with men of different faiths. My God isn't going to smite me for
bowing my head alongside a Muslim or a Jew. Their prayers are their own, and their fate is their own. And hey, maybe I
am wrong? But nobody
will know for sure until we're dead anyway, so why sweat it?
