DEAR DAVE: My wife and I go to a small church where we tithe. The church is continually asking for contributions to other charities and causes, and we don’t have the money to give to them all while we’re sticking to our budget and getting out of debt. The worst part is that we get pretty aggressive pushback when we say no. What can we do? — MICHAEL

Ronnie and Joyce Cooper of Bowling Green will celebrate their 50th anniversary on May 7, 2015.
DEAR ABBY: I’m comfortable with my faith and pray before a meal at home and at friends’ houses. We have become friendly with individuals from our church, and on many occasions have gone out to eat together at restaurants. When the meal is brought out, it has become a custom to pray. I feel uncomfortable praying aloud in public, and have seen others at our table already eating when someone says, “Let’s pray.” My wife tells me to just go with it. But sometimes when the praying goes on for a lengthy time, I start to get sweaty and on the verge of a panic attack. I wish they would take into consideration that others may feel praying is a private matter. I don’t believe that because one person doesn’t want to do something, others shouldn’t do it. So what say you? When food is brought to the table, should I dash to the restroom, or would that be rude? — PREFERS PRAYING PRIVATELY

QUESTION: I thought I could find God by studying the major religions, but I’ve only ended up confused. You’ll probably tell me to look at Christianity, but I’ve never tried because there are so many different churches. Maybe God can’t be found. Can you help? — N.S.
