“Zion’s quirky in the East Bay / But at least we’re not apostate”
(a svithe)


My friend Miguel Sanchez () wrote a lovely song for our ward's variety show (world premier: February 29,2008) in which he promoted the virtues of our ward, like men not shaving and girls winning the Pinewood Derby.

I really like our ward.

And today in Sunday School our teacher was even bold enough to discuss some of the most troubling verses in scripture. And for all the clever responses that can be given to explain them away, the best answer is found in a much broader and more universal theme of scripture, which theme is included even in very the same book the above verses come from.

Today's message is simple: God loves all. From the quirky to the queer to the blond to the black to the lame to the lycanthropic to the small to the smirky.

Behold, he sendeth an invitation unto all men,
for the arms of mercy are extended towards them,
and he saith: Repent, and I will receive you.
