A Christian, a Muslim, and a Jew log into a chat room

Yes.  I know it sounds like the set up for some really bad joke.  But it's what ended up happening last week on the fiction writing site I spend time in. 

I was chatting away with a few writers, and somehow the talk migrated to language, culture, and religion.  It turned out that three of us were a Christian, a Muslim, and a Jew.  And I had to laugh.  There we were, all getting along, all taking in a respectful way about something we all loved:  writing fiction. 

In that moment, the things that brought us together were far more important than anything that divided us.
