Yesterday we went to Jere’s ward and heard some amazing Sacrament talks. The third one had a phrase I don’t want to forget. He talked about how the walk of faith is a sharp mountain ridge between two steep cliffs: On the one side we have a 20,000 foot drop off of unbelief, agnosticism, atheism, and even anti-theism, and on the other we have religious superstition, magical thinking, and pharisaical practices. In the middle is the sharp, dynamic, faithful walk of the believer. Abe commented as we left, “The Church is true in Palo Alto!”
Then we went with Abe’s family to lunch. They all just happened to be in town visiting Jere at the same time we came!
Then we went to Muir Woods National Monument. It was incredibly beautiful.
