Fragile exuberance of the newly converted

We tend to overemphasise the importance of that which we have just learnt.

It’s a good thing too. The exuberance gives a chance for the lesson to work its way deep enough into our being to not be lost.

So when a friend is banging on, with the zeal of an ex-omnivore, humour them. With grace give that zeal some room to work its magic.
