It’s been over a year and a half since we moved into our ward and we thought we had dodged the you-are-new-so-you-get-to-speak-in-church bullet. Apparently not. After setting us apart in our callings last Sunday (me as the CTR 5 teacher, Micah as the Young Men’s Secretary–don’t worry, he’s only been serving in his calling for a year) Brother Alo said, “And now let me give you the good news.” He then asked us how long we had been in the ward. “About eighteen months,” we said. “Have you spoken in Sacrament meeting yet?” he asked. We began to get the feeling that this wasn’t good news at all. But we agreed to it anyway.
Our topics are obedience and discernment. We are asking for your help and suggestions. Any favorite scriptures, stories, conference talks, insights, et cetera would be appreciated. Feel free to shoot us an email as well as post comments here.
