How thrilling is it that the whole Church is gathered to hear the words of the Prophet this weekend? I like to think of it as a great family reunion that we have twice a year . . . with all those beloved “relatives” in Poland, Cambodia, Chile, India, Japan, Italy, Great Britain and so on.
When those first 6 members organized the Church in 1830, they envisioned this . . . “we began to talk about the kingdom of God as if we had the world at our command; we talked with great confidence, … although we were not many people; … we saw by vision the church of God, a thousand times larger.” Every nation, kindred, tongue and people; that was the commandment and the goal. Kindred . . . I like that.

It may be a talk that moved and encouraged you years ago . . . or you might have heard what will be your all-time favorite this weekend. Your answer may or may not pertain directly to your role in the life of a child with special needs. Each of us has many roles. But sharing what uplifted you is another way to fulfill the “mutual mentoring” goal of this site.
