Relate the religious practice of ecumenism to the overall story.
Compare Jeriba and Davidge’s relationship as the story opens to relationships between humans who
hail from different religious faiths. What factors might decide whether such relationships are

characters to better understand each other. Do you think something similar can (or should) occur to
reconcile the faiths of the world?
If this assignment were a research paper would you base your research on
