Age, experience and long time feelings inside and outside the church are sources of worthy topics of discussion. The Venerables are Mormonite tribal elders with sufficient longevity to speak of things without naivete. We see things from the right of the fence, the left of the fence and even sitting on the fence.
The sacred here is our freedom and willingness to talk openly and honestly – often with emotion – about all things Mormon, approved or otherwise.
We do not flame here nor consider others in disagreement as less than we who write. After all, our space here is like a friendly tavern. The bouncer here has never been awakened, riled or tossed somebody out.
