(I) talk of Christ . . . and (I) write according to (my understanding), that (my) children (and friends) may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins. (2 Nephi 25:26)

The Power of Worshipful Communion
We talk about individual conversion, but interestingly, the single best indicator of future baptism that has been identified in our stake is Sacrament Meeting attendance.It isn't referral source or "strong witness of the Book of Mormon" or answer to prayer - but Sacrament Meeting attendance.I think there is an entire week's worth of discussion on that one, but I simply will point out the communal spirit that hopefully attends that meeting.Each person must receive her own individual witness or feel his own individual desire to believe, but the one unifying thing many can share is the communal spirit that should fill our worship service.
I currently try to post original thoughts on Fridays, with quotes on Tuesdays. Feel free to comment on new or old posts. Comments on posts over a month old are moderated to avoid spam and will be released whenever I notice them. The comment policy is at the bottom of this page.
I welcome dissenting opinions about what I write and will never delete a comment solely because I disagree with its content. However, I will delete any and all comments that include personal attacks or insults (on individuals or the LDS Church) or blanket, thoughtless comments that reflect no effort to understand the post or individual comments - and any comment that I know to be patently untrue and inflammatory.
