As a child I was taken to the Welsh Baptists by my grandparents and then to the Unitarians by my parents...since then I have made friends across the Christian spectrum and also with other faiths...
I had a long intense conversation with a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka. I shared a classroom with a Seik for several years . I had a Jewish boyfriend when I was about 15. I attended the humanist wedding of a colleague where God was never mentioned but I am sure He was there.
I became a hippie in my twenties after having had my call into ministry refused on the grounds of my femaleness. I was always certain of the presence of God.
Teaching in Rochdale in the 80s meant that I had classes of Muslims and I read the Koran to find a beautiful book which reminded me of the Old Testament.
Christians now rejoice in all things ecumenical and hopefully Anglicans and Methodists can really join together at various times in our yearly cycles. I have also done joint services with our Roman Catholic priest...we work well together.
To expand faith over other religions as well as embracing different branches of Christianity is to me what Jesus was asking us to do.....to love each other as He loved us......it has no let out clause for differing beliefs....we are all people....there is one God....just many ways of describing Him/Her.
To see on Twitter a growing relationship between a Rabbi and an Imam is a great joy as they greet each other cordially every morning as one is getting up and the other is going to bed....they have started to share vocabulary now....which is a symbolic act of friendship which is often funny as well as touching.
Social media has its faults but if it can bring together even on a fleeting basis people from different backgrounds and belief systems then it can't be all bad! Who knows, it might even be a tool for good.....it's up to those of us who use it.
