Today I met Lynette and a few of her other friends (one mutual) to form a Mormon panel for the class she teaches at GTU on Mormonism. I went in to this experience without any very set expectations, but whatever my expectations might have been, the experience was even better. It was, shall we say, sensational to share my faith with a group of eight adults who have openness and curiosity and respect toward my religion. No one was trying to convert anyone else, no one was playing gotcha!, no one was trying to be the smartest in the room. Truly a great way to spend the afternoon.
I highly recommend sitting on a Mormon panel before a class of theological grad students to all of you Mormons out there. Very fun. I would do it again with very little prodding.
