    i sat in a church one night recently, for a Christmas service. It's the Punjabi service.

    A lady wearing a tidy black dastaar sat down next to me.

    For a while I half listened while 3 of the evangelical Christians bombarded her with their beliefs about how Jesus Christ will save you. I am sure she's firm in her own convictions nevertheless I felt sorry for her sitting there being proselytized to.

    Later in the evening I had a chance to go up to her. I said "Nanak naam chardikala tere bhaney sarbat da bhalla". She looked at me agape. Not in a bad way...just astonished. I continued. "Isn't that kind of what sikhi says too in the end? Through Nanak, his name, chanting waheguru, & all that, you obtain bliss...are saved somehow?"

    I ended the evening by wishing her ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਿਹ (WJKKWJKF).

    I LOVE seeing Sikhs come to the church. I love seeing any interfaith.

    But I'm rather inclined to not go for the proselytizing. ;)

    Would you be kind enough to shed some more light with details about this especially why the sermon of not embracing Jesus sends one to hell in Punjabi?

    Thanks
