There was (is?) a program on NPR where people could give little audio-essays about what they believe. I would often think of what I would say if I were to do one of these pieces.
Then yesterday, I was at this site and saw a variation on this theme.
Only way, way better.
Rachel Esplin, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and a student at Harvard, is part of a panel discussion about her beliefs, representing the LDS church. She does an amazing job, especially for a 20-something. I was really impressed, and I recommend you watch the video. She speaks faithfully, articulately, respectfully, and intelligently. Would that all religious conversations took place like this one....
