Relief Society Lesson 13: Obedience: "When the Lord Commands, Do It"
Sadly, our scheduled lesson provider is moving across the country this week and isn’t able to get tomorrow’s lesson up. So, we thought we’d offer an open-thread of thoughts and suggestions for how to teach this lesson. Here are some ideas we thought of (just off the top of our heads).
Questions to ask yourself and the class:
In the spirit of Exponent II, have you had an experience where you were asked to be obedient? What happened?
What traits are required to be obedient?
What is the difference between be being thoughtfully obedient and blindly following? When do we question and when do we just follow? Julie M Smith’s post, “Blood on the Doorposts,” regarding SSM in California has got me asking myself these questions ever since I read this.
Some resources to inspire you (or your class):
