Hi Debra and Ray,
This is a very good discussion.
Ray, I live in the Boston area and can say that the surest way to get yourself ostracized (or much worse) in these parts is to walk in with an attitude that you're better than everyone else and want to shine your bright light on their horrible darkness.
We all know that Christians are called to humility---most people are smart enough to sniff out holier-than-thou arrogance a mile away. To my way of thinking, a Christian veg who is called to long-term attendance at an animal-hostile meat-eating congregation must be, or become, an exceptionally humble, loving (agape), and patient person because it's an uphill battle.
Debra, I for one do not believe that I am personally called of God to dedicate large amounts of my time and money to a meat-eating congregation---but I praise God that He calls some of us Christian vegs to that difficult ministry. We must all try to be the best possible stewards of that which He has given us.
Blessings in Jesus Christ,
