The wife is really looking forward to spending time with relatives she hasn’t seen for thirty years. They are having a family reunion in California late December. Problem is, most of them have converted from Catholic to Iglesia ni Cristo. I put my foot down and said we wern’t going until after Christmas and she has (reluctantly) agreed but I just know there will be some friction. One of her niece’s hasn’t spoken to her since we sent them a Christmas Card twenty-five years ago.
Any suggestions? I would love to re-evangelize them but I will be vastly outnumbered as well as being at a linguistic disadvantage. The safe thing to do seems to get them to agree right up front that we will not be discussing religion. Is that a cop out?
