I don't think I've ever had anyone try to foist their beliefs on me, or convert me. Except for the JW's at the door of course and all they really want to do is give me a leaflet which goes straight in the recycling.
Son's school in England before we came to Canada was a church school, but most Church of England schools don't evangelise so much as occasionally refer to god at Christmas and Easter. However, one day he came home from school (kindergarten) with some Creationism leaflets from some visiting Church folk. I had words with the teacher and I went out and bought a whole pile of 'how the universe was formed in a big bang' and 'the story of evolution' books. He's now a committed atheist and sometimes gets into heated debates with friends at school who are not. He's seven.....
So I try to teach him to a) respect their beliefs and b) not get into theological debates.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
