Despite the fact that I’ve been pretty transparent about my religious journey and have previously blogged that I was rejecting the LDS Church, it is now the Sunday of General Conference and I’m about to watch the afternoon session. I missed all the others due to my sleep schedule (and the fact that we HAD to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier yesterday), but I did watch Elder Holland’s talk this morning and I know I’ll catch up on everything else soon. (Not gonna lie, I’m an Elder Holland fangirl. I’ve listened to every talk of his that I can find. LOVE that man. Also love Eyring and feel like he should use his fantastic voice to narrate every documentary ever.)
Fact: I still can’t reconcile some of the LDS Church’s beliefs with my own. That hasn’t changed.
Fact: I find great comfort and inspiration in the words of the LDS church leaders.
Fact: I’m at a point in my life where I believe that inspiration comes from all directions and that God works in millions of ways to reach us.
Fact: Close-mindedness has no place in my life, especially right now.
So, yeah.. as usual, I’m bouncing back and forth like I’m caught in a pinball machine. But from the moment I decided to reject convention and do and believe and worship where I felt called to rather than where I was “expected” to, ricocheting from this to that has kind of been par for the course for me.
Anyway, T minus 5 minutes until the start of the afternoon session!
