It was my second week in the ward. Brother Aamodt, who was conducting priesthood meeting, closed the session with a request. “Brethren, as you know, we have been lacking musical talent in our priesthood quorums for some time. Could you pray that we might have some sent to us?” I waited for the laughter — Brother Aamodt had been the accompanist for the opening hymn, and had done a perfectly fine job. There were a few smiles, but even more nods.
Notes from the second hour of the priesthood session, October 2006. All three members of the First Presidency spoke this hour.
Notes from the first hour are at http://www.millennialstar.org/index.php/2006/10/01/priesthood_session_notes_october_2006_fi_1
From the first hour of last night’s session. Second hour notes will go up later today.
(the second hour notes are now posted here:
I use a lot of electronic books in my personal and academic life, and Logos provides many of them, such as the JPS Torah Commentary. Many other good scholarly works are available from Logos, such as the Anchor Bible Dictionary. Some of their material would be more accurately classified as “pseudo-scholarship.”
I’ve never enjoyed home teaching.
