"Spiritual Mountains – What African Hope Taught Me"

You know, I have had people ask me what it was like to be a student of President Kusch’s. He is actually a very good teacher and when you major in the discipline that he is teaching, it means that you’re also taking classes from his colleagues. I could never blow off an assignment, or sit and sleep during class because everything I did in the business management department had to be perfect, excellent work because I didn’t want him or any of his friends to think that I was stupid. So, there was great pressure!

"The Wounded Storyteller"

It is my privilege to be with you today. I thank you for coming, because I was fearful that you wouldn’t, and even though you being here adds to my nervousness, I have prayed and fasted that the Lord will bless me, and you, during the short time we have together this morning.

I start my talk today referring to the renowned medical sociologist Arthur Frank, who often wrote about what he called THE WOUNDED STORYTELLER, an ancient term with an ancient consistency attached—a term that often defined my doctoral work years ago and a concept that has often fit my life at various times. Dr. Frank noted:

"That You May Know How to Act (When You Don't Know What to Do)"

Brothers and sisters, I am excited and happy to be with you this morning in the opening devotional of the semester. I hope that you each took the opportunity last week to listen to President Nelson as he spoke. Sister Kusch and I express our love to you and for you; we are grateful you are here and pray for your success and happiness.  

To begin, I would like to show a short video inviting everyone to devotional. 

 

We want you to enjoy coming to devotional each week, ride a scooter if you need to! Don’t bring them on Temple Square. We almost got arrested when we were filming this video, so we just want you to be careful. We do want you to come to devotional each week and to help others by inviting your friends to attend devotional with you. I testify that as you do, you will be blessed in your studies and all areas of your life to become a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ.
