Quote of the Month
"And that's why I worry a little bit about the energy we spend in these wrangling about the exclusivism, the one true church, etc. Because I'm not entirely sure that it will get us anywhere. I think it's best for me to believe that my wife is the best person in the world. And I'm fortunate because it's actually true. But even if it weren't....I think in a kind of deepness of commitment and affection and allowance for the light of God to shine from her, it makes the most sense over all, even at a pragmatic level, to see her as the one true wife. What I worry about is that the wranglings over the general will divorce people from the experience of the beauty of the specificity" (Sam Brown, Mormon Matters podcast, episode 261, 45:46).
