I have been teaching seminary for 9 years. I think you nailed it. During your video I decided to do a lesson on this very topic. It will be a wonderful way to incorporate the upcoming Christmas season. Well done.
Thanks Amy. I think we are getting closer as a Church but not there yet.
John, I too have taught seminary for many years and now am the ward RS Pres.
I loved you message and had one thought come to me as you read. ..
Perhaps if you replaced “what if we” instead of the word “should”. It would sound less like you’re being critical of the current system of the missionary program etc. but giving a better option and leaving it up to agency.
Your message is powerful and one I have felt compelled to focus on with the sisters in our ward.
I totally agree with you but felt “should” could come across a bit harsh or critical.
Thank you for all you do to built His kingdom through Him.
I think you are right. And I really don't want to be critical, but still move the ball forward.
