David shared this blog post/article with me today. I really enjoyed it. I think it is an outlook on the Gospel and the church that would be beneficial for me to utilize. I especially like the part about the Lord not running a bed & breakfast. We have a vested interest in this whole deal.
And, while I'm waxing religiously philosophical (okay, not actually waxing because it's late and I'm tired), I have been meaning to share this link, The Two Trees. I have to say that this is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. I feel like it meshes very well with my understanding of various gospel components, but it is put together in an entirely new way. It actually makes the Plan of Salvation more meaningful and relevant because EVERYONE, regardless of gender, has an important role. There is a lot of lip service about the importance of women in the church, but it is hard to buy the line when it comes from a (nearly) all male leadership. Anyways, I've been wanting to discuss this article with like-minded friends for the past month, but I don't know if anyone I've shared the link with has taken the time to read it. If you read it, tell me what you think.
