Sunday in Outer Blogness: Vacation edition!
Yes, it’s vacation season here in Europe! All the fascinating news and stories keep pouring in from Mormon-land, but sadly I have not had time to gather them up for you.
I put off putting up this post because I kept thinking “I will have some point have a block of time when I can do SiOB…” And it kept not happening. It’s surprising how time-consuming vacation can be, especially considering how little travel we’re doing this year. I don’t think I’ll have time to do a catch up post until probably the middle of next week. 🙁
In the meantime, please give a warm welcome to the newest members of Outer Blogness: Gen-X Gillian and iGenIvy!
You bet, “born in the covenant” is a big deal, hence the bulk of church membership. But when one leaves all behind, to walk free into the beautiful world, what about those venerated ancestors? After growing up cousin to the current prophet, g-g-granddaughter of The Greatest Missionary, sure, there’s DNA baggage walking away with me.
(Little did I know g-g-grandaddy’s contribution was challenged as belonging to JS, since g-g-grandma spent the years her husband served missions as a single-parent, thus vulnerable to “The Prophet’s” wily charms. DNA testing resolved that claim in the late-90s.)
