A few years ago Benyamin Cohen, the son of an Orthodox rabbi, decided to check out some Christian churches and see what all the excitement was all about.
He discovered lots of exciting things, like first time visitor parking at a Methodist church and ancient rituals at the Episcopal Church. He also learned that he had food and clothing commonalities with Mormons.
Cohen documents his journey in, “My Jesus Year.”
Religion students, youth groups and the theologically curious have taken similar journeys. We asked our panelists if they've been down this road.
Have you ever attended a church or place of worship for a faith outside your own? How did it help you better understand that faith? How did it influence your views on your own faith?
