For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
What Shall I Give in Exchange for My Soul?
I am drawn to simple, yet profound statements: one sentence sermons that make me think and stew and ponder. Perhaps this is why, in looking over my notes from General Conference, Elder Robert C. Gay’s talk seems to run the most through my mind. His reiteration of the Savior’s question to His disciples, “What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” made me stop in my tracks and examine my life.
