  1. I’m not sure I understand her point, but then I wasn’t listening.
  2. FWIW: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.texasmonthly.com/the-culture/they-havent-got-a-prayer/amp/ I grew up one of about 10 LDS kids in a high school of about 1500 students, about half of whom were Jewish. I am grateful we didn’t have prayer in school. In the Santa Fe case, local conservative Christian groups were trying to push their religious beliefs into the schools. It’s not surprising that one of the plaintiffs was LDS. They should be praised for standing up for their right to worship freely without state-sanctioned pressure.
  3. I was really hoping this wasn’t true. I’ve made a lot of friends over the years from this board, and I was blessed to call Clark a friend. It probably had more to do with our shared passion for good chocolate, but even though we disagreed as much as we agreed about religion, philosophy, and language, we never exchanged an unkind word. He was unfailingly kind and charitable, and he went out of his way to listen to people, no matter how much he disagreed. I am deeply saddened to lose not only a friend but one of the kindest voices on this board. God bless his wife and family with peace.

  5. I wasn’t paying attention, I guess.
  6. When did they start broadcasting the priesthood session?
  7. Someone close to me just got called as a GA, and my first thought was how radically their lives will change. My wife mentioned that he had just been released from his prior calling, and I said, jokingly, that’s because he’s going to be a GA. Not terribly surprised, but it will be interesting where they end up.
  8. Well, that’s certainly an interesting bit to focus on, but I was thinking more about what she said about doctrinal gray areas and the tension between bureaucratic will and revelation. But fair enough.
  9. The CNN article was written by a BYU grad. I don’t like the headline, but the article is quite perceptive.
  10. True. I’ve only said no once. For some reason, you make me think of a deli I went to in my youth.
  11. I had lunch with him once, at least 15 years ago, back when I was a believer.
  12. I’ve known Wade for roughly 25 years. Kind of fun seeing him around again.
