The indispensable guidebook to help the well - meaning guest when visiting other people's religious ceremonies - updated and revised. New edition!We North Americans live in a remarkably diverse society, and it's increasingly common to be invited to a wedding, funeral or other religious service of a friend, relative or coworker whose faith is different from our own. These can be awkward situations...What will happen? What do I do? What do I wear? What do I say? What should I avoid doing, wearing, saying? Is it okay to use a video camera? How long will it last? What are their basic beliefs? Will there be a reception? Will there be food? Should I bring a gift? When is it okay to leave?These are just a few of the basic questions answered in How to Be a Perfect Stranger. This easy - to - read guidebook, with an "Everything You Need to Know Before You Go" checklist, helps the well - meaning guest to feel comfortable, participate to the fullest extent possible and avoid violating anyone's religious principles - while enriching their own spiritual understanding.
