This week, as I prepared a Relief Society Lesson on Unity (and the barriers we put up), I was delighted to read this piece by Courtney on judging, misjudging, and living it up!
Speaking of that lesson, I pulled from a couple of terrific talks by Cheiko Okazaki and Elaine Jack. I felt such a connection to that General Relief Society Presidency (with Aileen Clyde rounding it out) — they indelibly shaped the way I view this organization. The talks:
Stake Relief Society president writes a profile of the society for her local paper.
An fifteen-year-old watches the murder of a stepfather who repeatedly raped and molested her. Twenty years later, this LDS mother of five has rebuilt her life. She cooperates fully with investigators . . . and now faces three to six years in prison. Is this a case of justice robbing mercy? Is it justice at all?
