Sunday in Outer Blogness: Life Issues Edition!!
Ladies, do you remember these lovely object lessons? Black folks, does this account sound familiar? (Books like this one may be conveniently forgotten about, but good luck ever seeing a repudiation and apology…). And if you’re intersex? Then where do you fit into the plan? Hell, kids in general get a bit of a raw deal. Can you be surprised if post-Mormons are doing a bit of processing?
In Mormon studies, we got some tips on how not to talk to Mormons (if you want a straight answer). Alex provided some interesting analysis of the Articles of Faith, and Mithryn provided a fascinating look at how early Mormonism is like the universe of Harry Potter!!
Of course mo and fo-mo bloggers also like to post about life issues, triumphs, delicious cakes, etc., that are — at most — tangentially Mormon-related! The Girl Who is having thoughts, Daniel is enjoying success in fonts and spelling, whereas Kuri excels in vocabulary. Aerin doesn’t want the stress of birthday parties. Dan Pearce has a sort of micro-loan program for people who are belly-up broke. Roger Hansen was hanging out with prisoners in Uganda while Lynette compared missions and mental hospitals.
Crazily enough, those last two are related to what I was doing this past week!!! You may have heard (if you read this blog or my personal blog) that the post-Mormons of Switzerland (including me) went on a pilgrimage to London to see The Book of Mormon this past Wednesday. It was fantastic!! Read my account here. If I may go into testimony mode for a minute, I am just so grateful to the member of our group who had the idea to do this trip and organized the whole thing! Thanks, J!!
I hope the rest of you had a great week too!!
