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.
