There are two reasons behind this post today:
1) It is going to be a hot weekend for much of the USA, and the heatwave reminded me of this story about the scorpion in the desert.
2) Many of the discussions and comments I have seen on social media lately have caused me to think about this conference address. Mostly because of one specific concept:
Oh, yeah. That stings. (At least it stings ME.)
Who said it?
Elder Patrick Kearon the October, 2010 Priesthood Session of General Conference. Since it was in Priesthood Session, there is a possibility that some of you sisters (and brethren) never heard it. You really should listen to it, because it is awesome, and wise. And kinda creepy. (Yes, I just described a General Conference address as kinda creepy.) Creepy or not, it is one of my favorite Conference talks in many years.
Also, Elder Kearon has a SWEET English accent, so I recommend you watch the video rather than read it. The talk is only 11 minutes – so I encourage you to find the time.
“Come Unto Me With Full Purpose of Heart, and I will Heal You.”
Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
