267.1: Family (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 45, Updated)

November 30, 2017

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“The Family Is Ordained of God”

 

There’s no getting around the complex importance of families. We all come from one… all come from the same one, if you look back far enough. And we all have strong feelings about those families which shape us more than anything else. In this update I discuss what a family means on several levels: family of origin, family of choice, tribes and communities, and the human family. I conclude by discussing families ideal and real, and the paradox that in order for our real families to be healthy, in a way we need to let go of the ideal.
