I became aware that the question of worship was pointed and focused. We had already talked at length covering commonalities in morals and ethics. Our personal experiences and goals offered ample ground to share and encourage. I had underestimated how thoroughly he perceived his circumstances. Our encounter revealed, at least to myself, the superior position I had assumed. I believed my perspective was raised, exalted, seeing farther and more clearly. I hope I learned from this though I may not have changed my beliefs. Towards the end of our time together I asked him something to effect of, “Do you worship?” This emerged clearly to me as the most pointed and focusing question, personal and intimate . . . without escape.
