Through them all, uniting them all, however, is a testimony of and witness for our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Three thousand pounds of jelly sliding backward down the highway; a child with no accordion; a father covered head to toe in pale, yellow paint. Thirty talks, dozens of stories, hundreds of scriptures and testimonies, one purpose: that we “press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men” (2 Nephi 31:19).
Righteous masks, rotten apples, Mark Spitz, June Cleaver, tar and feathers, hotel soap, baking chocolate, and living happily ever after, twenty-six talks, dozens of stories, hundreds of scriptures and testimonies, one purpose: “that ye should look to the great Mediator, and hearken unto his great commandments; and be faithful unto his words, and choose eternal life, according to the will of his Holy Spirit” (2 Nephi 2:28).
Dead Volkswagens, cheating carhops, unused oven mitts, Job’s friends, burned Barbie™ dolls, hip waders, horse whips, twenty-two talks, dozens of stories, hundreds of scriptures and testimonies, one purpose: that you and I can “come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind, and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God” (2 Nephi 31:19).
