All very interesting interesting stuff…]]>
You really don’t hear about that now days – either the experiences or the council.]]>
The latter day pioneers were a large group of people, bonded together with a common cause, living amongst each other in some of the most dire circumstances. The experiences both the most inimately spiritual as well as the daily hardships couldn’t have been less than common knowledge, in many instances.
I would imagine same goes for the journaling. They recorded their experiences, testified of the truths they knew. The pioneers ENTIRE existance centered Heavenly Father, and their church. Their jobs, lifestyle, where they lived..ect. Everything.
How many of us can honestly, honestly say that?
Keeping these sacred experiences private might be a way of “cherishing” them. To not expose them to the world that would cast doubt, possibly mock, or where you would have to defend them.]]>
I wonder if what is measured is the increasing sense in the church that one ought be careful sharing such experiences?]]>
