Every once in awhile, I read or hear something that just zings. It someone manages to encapsulate in “the little narrow prison[,] almost as it were total darkness of paper, pen, and ink” the love that Jesus Christ has for us. I read something today that managed that; it concerns Mitch Mayne, a gay member of the Church in California who was recently called as an executive secretary.
“Jason Harris-Boundy, Mayne’s friend . . . hear[d] Mayne giving his introductory remarks in his new San Francisco ward. After that meeting, he overheard Mayne telling an attendee, ‘Look, if you want to change your life, we are super-excited to help you do that. If you just want us to love you and care for you as a brother, we are super-excited to do that, too.'”
While I have some concerns over what he presented and how he presented it on his website, this quote (assuming it is accurate, blahblahblah) suggests to me that he Gets It.
