I was very excited about this change.

I wonder if it means we're one step closer to women getting the priesthood... (if that happens :-/) We might have to wait for Nelson and Oaks to die for that... :P It was the same sort of thing for blacks and the priesthood BTW.

Often I hear doubt being presented as the opposite of faith but I think certainty does a better job of filling that role. Doubts can help faith grow, certainty almost always makes faith shrink. --nibbler

Nelson? Yep, probably.

Oaks? I'm not sure. He is complicated.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
