Edit: Wow- this is super long. If you ready this, thanks
Background: I live in a state where there is a clear religious majority. I am not a member of this particular religion, and have no intentions of ever becoming a member. I choose not to practice any religion, and consider myself atheist. I have friends, co-workers, and acquaintances who are members, and most of my neighbors are members. I have no ill feelings toward any of them, and have formed some nice friendships despite our religious differences. I am not very vocal about my thoughts on religion, and it rarely if ever comes ups in conversation.
I occasionally get visits from missionaries, and most recently was sitting on my lunch break and two lovely girls came over to me and started chatting. I did not necessarily mind the company, but the conversation did flirt with the message they are supposed to deliver. I changed the subject, said I have been here for 5 years and my position is the same. We chatted a little longer about my family, etc. I mentioned that I have a toddler, when asked if I want to have more, I mentioned that I have twins on the way. during the conversation it came up that I do not have a big circle of friends, and no family nearby, so I don't have a huge support system. Its not non-existent, but it is very very small.
QUESTION: The girls gave me their contact info and said to contact them if I ever need help, and they are also here to help people. So if I needed help with some light house cleaning, laundry, etc. I can see in the future when the twins arrived how some occasional assistance like this could come in handy. But I kinda feel like I am taking advantage of kindness, and saying, yes please come and clean my house for free, but keep the religious stuff at the front door. WDYT?
