    I often ask my nonmember friends to come to church with me. Is it OK to go to church with them if they ask me to?

    While you shouldn’t ever skip your own Church meetings to go to another church with a friend, it’s OK to occasionally go with friends to see their religious services. You’ll get a chance to learn about other religions and what makes ours different. Remember to be respectful of their worship services, just as you hope they will be respectful of ours.

    Learning about your friends’ religions will probably allow you to talk more openly with them about spiritual topics. Understanding what is important to them can be helpful in explaining what is important to you. They will appreciate your efforts to learn more about them and their beliefs.

    As you do this, be careful. Avoid doing anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or causes you to question your beliefs and standards. Before you go, pray to have the Spirit with you. Then enjoy the opportunity to expand your knowledge of different religions and, at the same time, understand more about your own.
