Day of Faith

Have you visited Sherrie Johnsons blog yet? No? Well, she gives a link to a lovely interview taken at Harvard about religion.

Take a moment and watch Rachel's excellent interview, then if you have time, watch some of the others. Very interesting.

Sometimes very simple, obvious things are not so very simple and obvious for me. The interviewer commented to Rachel that most of America doesn't know much about the Mormon religion. Although I knew very little to nothing until I was 14, this still came as an "Oh Duh!" moment. Living in Utah, life isn't very varied (say that three times fast) in that on every corner there is a Chapel, and on every other corner a Temple. Okay, not every other corner, but still, there aren't many peaks in Utah that you can stand on top of and not see a glorious Temple shining. What am I doing? Why am I not out about the world, proclaiming the Lords word and sharing this wonderful Gospel with my brothers and sisters? I've always said that I want to stay and raise my family in Utah, but now I'm questioning that. Seriously. And, as we've learned lately, for me to question something is a very serious process. The missionary fervor swelled up inside me as I watched this video. Rachel, I think, did an excellent job at representing and explaining our faith. I want to do the same!!

"Go ye into all the world; and unto whatsoever place ye cannot go ye shall send, that the tetimony may go from you into all the world unto every creature." D&C 84:62

I watched that video a little bit ago after reading Sherrie's blog. She did an amazing job representing our faith! I hope you had some time to go to the site and listen to some of the other faiths talk...I thought those were interesting to learn about as well.
