032: Doctrine & Covenants Lesson 6: Revelation II

“I Will Tell You in Your Mind and in Your Heart, by the Holy Ghost”

In this lesson we will discuss a topic of vital importance. How do we interpret revelation? How do we distinguish inspiration from God and our own thoughts, feelings, and desires? Once we can identify that we are receiving a prompting from a source greater than ourselves, how do we interpret it? How should we act on it? What is the relationship of personal revelation and teachings revealed through scripture and Church leaders?

    I love the many ideas shared that support the concept that revelation comes in diverse ways. An adult who discredits spiritual experiences as purely emotional experiences fails to see that revelation is founded in a combination of mind and heart. I think this discussion group clearly expressed the multi demensional characteristics of revelation.

    I really liked the suggestion about handing out quotes to class members and then letting them decide if and when they want to share them with the class. I did this last week and really liked how it worked.

    That in the long list of quotes assembled there was only one by a woman seemed striking when I pointed it out to my wife. Recognizing that issue is going to lead me to search out more supporting quotes by other notable women in the church.

    To Jared and the rest of the engaging crew, thanks for your hard work. I think I would’ve had to ask to be released from teaching this year given my jaded view of church history. You’ve helped to save my integrity. And I really, really love teaching, so thanks.

      Thanks for the comment! And um, yeah I totally relate. I am kind of agonizingly working through this year myself. 😉
