Virtual Oases XXXV
Since I didn’t post last week, some of these are “old” — but still worth a look.
- Margaret Young: Faith in the Shadow of Death
- Heather O: Like Two Ships, Passing in the Burger King
- Kathy: “Despair, for a mother, may be defined as thus: being in so much pain and desperation that you’d consider abandoning your child in order to bring yourself relief.”
- Susan M: Thoughts from the third pew, center left
- Entrepeneurs among us
- PDOE: Facing callings when we are feeling weary
- Amira: “I don’t like the story of the Daughter of Jephtah . . . So is [it] worth bringing up in a place like a Young Women’s lesson? I think so.”
- Profile of Carol Lynn Pearson’s new book: “Too Many Goodbyes”
- Need a spiritual uplift? Read one of these stories from the Washington Post.
- Katharine Jefferts Schori: the new presiding bishop of the Episcopal church
- Beautiful Times Op-Ed: “All Saints’ Day is a good time to remember that while most saints led lives of quiet service, some led the life of the noisy prophet, speaking the truth to power — even when that power was within the church.”
- A female LDS soldier, “interrogation techniques,” and a life cut short: A tragedy whatever way you look at it.
