Today's Piece: "In a Nutshell" by Doug Staker
This is not the way we usually talk about exaltation.
Shortly after my mission, I was called to teach Sunday School for a large class of 14-16 year-olds. One week, the lesson was on the plan of salvation, and after going through the standard diagram with circles for pre-existence, earth life, the spirit world, and the kingdoms beyond, I handed out paper and a big bucket of crayons and colored pencils and asked them each to think of a different way to draw that same journey.
I would love to see Doug Staker's plan of salvation diagram.
What do you think of this poetic piece of it?
How might you describe the relationship between mortality and eternity?
What role can literature play in studying the gospel?
