I’m actually Catholic, but out of an abundance of theological / historical curiosity and politeness to accept this invitation, I’m thinking of attending at least once. The concept seems to be at least by my vague reckoning similar to my current faith minus apostolic succession, but keeping a lot of Hebrew tradition, sort of like this is maybe what the Church would have been like if Christianity had been more universally embraced at the start and just been the next chapter in Judaism. I just don’t want to be caught off guard or pressured in to doing something at services that might cross over in to acts or gestures contrary to my conscience.
A co-worker has invited me to a Messianic service. I’m not sure what to expect.
