This is my religion! International Swap

In this swap you will have 2 partners and you'll prepare each partner a package containing some items that describe your religion. It can be a picture of where you attend services, some pamphlets describing your beliefs, a note about your religious customs, links to websites that your religion has, pencils, stickers, or anything that has to do with your religion. Should be a few items (enough for a 6x9 envelope at least).

Please note, the purpose of this swap is to LEARN about other religions from the people that know them best. This swap isn't meant for anyone to judge or speak poorly of any other religion or religious beliefs. If you are not interested in receiving religious material from any religion you don't practice, this swap probably isn't for you. Be open minded, even if your partner's beliefs differ from your own. This swap also is NOT intended to be a way to convert someone or to try and recruit them to your way of thinking. It is to LEARN about other religions and to share what you believe. Under NO circumstance whatsoever should you sign your partner up to receive anything from your religious organization or to be contacted in any way from ANYONE that is affiliated with your religion. Whatever your partner receives about your religion should be contained in the envelope you send them. No outside sources involved and no pressure to join, believe, or research your religion any further. This swap is about sharing and learning and not about recruiting anyone to your way of thinking or judging anyone's religion. Be sensitive and don't speak poorly of any religion (including your own). Rate based on whether you received your package or not and do not comment negatively about what you received if it is something you don't agree with. Everyone is welcome to join. Would love to learn about different religions throughout the world!

Note: Since the swap date is pretty far away, when it's time to assign partners, I'll check profiles to make sure everyone meets the proper criteria. I'll also be dropping anyone who hasn't logged in within 10 days of the signup date.

Please ask me any questions you might have! Don't join if you can't follow the rules. International swap, no recent no sends.

As a Catholic teacher...I'm really looking forward to receiving some new material to present to my world religion students! Great idea!
