    Thanks to you all. I’m always a bit surprised by how much I enjoy listening to these (and less so each time).

    As an aside, one obvious joy of reading great writers is how often they deliver lines that reach beyond their own stories and grab yours, often with great timing. Here are a few of Julian Barnes’s that reach into the Conference Center.

    “I have been asked to explain things to you. To explain how you — we — find ourselves in the position we are now … We should perhaps begin by going back to the nineteenth century…”

    “Franklin found himself back in an easy rhythm … He felt his audience begin to relax. The circumstances were unusual, but they were being told a story, and they were offering themselves to the story-teller in a manner of audiences down the ages, wanting to see how things turned out, wanting to have the world explained to them.”

    (From: A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters)

    Great discussions all around! And to the second all-male panel, don’t worry, as a feminist I found your comments insightful. :)

      Whew! As you can tell, I was a bit nervous it would be just a big mansplaining fest. And nobody wants that.

    Yesterday I was flipping through the 2015 General Conference edition of the Ensign and paused on Elder Joseph W. Sitati’s Sunday Afternoon session talk, “Be Fruitful, Multiply and Subdue the Earth.

    I found it remarkable that he took “subdue the earth and to have dominion over every living thing” to include “gaining mastery over our own bodies.” His subsequent connection of this to the evils of pornography seemed quite a stretch as far as proof-texting goes.

    I like how the men reviewed the the Women’s session, and how the women reviewed the Priesthood (Men’s) session. Great job.
