The Gospel Chews at You

March 31st, 2014 by Man SL

You know a guy. His wife is one of us. He is not. He and you butcher animals together. Most recently, your two hogs two weeks ago.

Small and Large Graces

March 17th, 2014 by Adam G.

On the sweetness of Mormon life:

Your Elders Quorum President asks you to go on rescue visits after church with someone from the stake. You don’t like accosting strangers. You never have. You are sweating it a bit. “Watch out,” you think, “I’m getting sucked into that churchy thing.” You resolve to do it. You feel peace. When you get to Church, Bishop tells you its been called off.

The Second Day of Christmas

December 26th, 2013 by Adam G.

A day for regretting eating a second helping of stuffing, for raking leaves with the rakes the red-clad elf left under the tree, for puzzling out your daughter’s new boardgame, for testing new firearms with your brothers, and for listening to the Spirit on how you can do good.

A Faith, Homely in the Execution

June 24th, 2013 by Adam G.

Sacrament Meeting, after communion, the young women bear their testimony of Girls’ Camp in turn. The bishop talks about pyromania and closes in the name of Christ. A cricket hidden somewhere chirps and chirps.

February 28th, 2013 by Adam G.

I went to bed last night grim and low in spirit. I woke up this morning with a light heart humming a refrain: “He only is holy, He only is one.” I believe its the closing lines of a hymn I’ve heard before, but I can’t remember what hymn. I’m not certain that the lines are exactly as I remember them. The last phrase might be ‘He only is Lord,’ for instance. If you have a notion, please help.
