We talk of Christ . . . and we write according to our (understanding), that our 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 welcome dissenting opinions about what I write and will never delete a comment because I disagree with its content. However, I will delete any and all comments that include personal attacks or insults (on individuals or the Mormon 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.
