Unexpected tears for an exemplar…

I have decided to postpone my intended critique on theoconservativism in order to post a tribute video of Gordon B. Hinckley. I did not expect it too, but it brought tears to my eyes. Sometimes in life you are brought to the kind of simple and innocent faith that brings out the forgotten child in you…the kind of child that would sing “Armies of Helaman” in church and get the shivers, the child that instinctively knows that Christ’s teachings are the way we should live or lives, and the kind of child that (in my case) got shivers and had unexpected joyous tears when I prayed about the Book of Mormon. The kind of feelings that ‘decomplicate’ life and bring you back to the central tenants of your faith. This video was one of those unexpected but salvific moments for me. Hinckley lived as a disciple of Christ. God Bless you all. I hope you enjoy it.
