Well Said

I saw this clip on one of my best friend's, Marci's, sister's, Lisa's, blog (who happens to be my friend as well). Did you follow that? The point is, it's really good. At Harvard they celebrated a Day of Faith. Five different students answered questions about their individual faiths. Sally Quinn, a journalist from the Washington Post, lead the discussion. Rachel Esplin was the student who answered on behalf of the Mormon faith -- members from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And I thought she did beautifully. She stated the facts, bore testimony, and was a wonderful representative of the church. Other discussions about the other religions can be found here.

* One qualm -- I wouldn't have said that the church as "progressed" over time when it comes to women's issues. Rather, the church has changed overtime based on revelation received by our prophet. Progress, to me, seems like we've changed because we're keeping up with the times. But, I don't think she meant it that way. I was really impressed with how well she answered the questions.
