R ELIGIOUS  C OMMUNITIES  F IELD  R ESEARCH General Guidelines Essentially, just follow the Golden Rule, as espoused by a variety of world religious traditions. Try to put yourselves in the shoes  of our hosts and be as respectful as possible.  For instance, in a religious service, try to blend into the religious service or  meeting as much as possible so as to avoid any unnecessary discomfort for those around you.  Ask about when and where it  would be appropriate to bring a notepad for recording your observations.  Participate as much as you feel comfortable doing. Be  friendly, and let other people show you hospitality.  Be respectful and appreciative guests.
