Yep!

I was raised Catholic and always felt alien, I found out as an adult that my mother converted to Judiasm and I am really Jewish. I felt alien. I walked into a shul, I felt at home!

I'm the Alien, at least like I feel as one.

I feel as an Alien. I live where I don't come from and don't care to be here. I'm here because of my husbands greedy co. I know we didn't have to come. But what do you do when one has put almost their entire life at that job. We are here for his Co can have their Tax Cut! So As a Christian, something came into my thoughts. We aren't from this world anyway. This whole planet earth isn't my real home! I agree we were put here to spread the good news of God. Then when our work is done we will go to the place where we truly belong! Can't wait!!!!

Chosen People

But we are aliens-we are from the planet of spreading the knowledge of one G-d, like Romans were for building, Greeks for philosophy etc. We aren't the Chosen people...but chosen for something-just like aliens on each planet when they come together can learn so much :)
