    Oct 7 2012: I am not from the Philippines. In the USA, fellowship is a christian term. Do you intend it to be understood this way or did you mean something other than Christians coming together ?

      Oct 17 2012: IfI were to redefine it in our society would it not be a good idea?

        Oct 18 2012: No. It would confuse - at least in the US. It would cause great anger.

        Oct 22 2012: Though "a" fellowship is an academic award, the term "fellowship" by itself is what Christians do when they come together to worship and socialize.

        In the USA, Christianity is on the decline and there is growing anger at the church since it turned mean and aggressive over the last 20 years or so. Christians would happily assume that it meant a prayer-related group and non-christians, assuming the same thing, would be offended.

        Is there something wrong with the word "cooperation" or "teaming"? The words are already understood in a neutral context.
