I hear those words, almost on a weekly basis.
On a weekly basis, I get a few more drops of courage to actually raise my hand.
?Ç¬†Why is it that we don’t oppose when it’s how we feel sometimes??Ç¬† I must admit, I have never done it in a public meeting.?Ç¬† The closest I ever got was a few weeks ago when I had a PPI / HT interview with the EQP.?Ç¬† I told them point blank that I opposed a number of things they were doing in the quorum.?Ç¬† I didn’t try to be a jerk about it, but I let them know how I felt and why.?Ç¬† And, then to make it clear, I told them if they continued, I could not sustain them.?Ç¬† I / They left it there.?Ç¬† Nothing has changed.?Ç¬† They now know where I stand.
So, I’m thinking about our ward and stake conference that are comming up, where I’ll have another chance to oppose in public.?Ç¬† Honestly, I don’t know that I have the guts to do it.?Ç¬† I think I’d be more inclined to not raise my hand to sustain and afterwards, go to whoever and voice my opposition.?Ç¬† I admit that is the easier way out.
