Today was a fun day. We left at 8:00 this morning to go to a big inservice meeting for early morning seminary and institute teachers. We gathered with over 150 teachers from Virginia, Maryland and Washington. The different coordinators in each of these areas presented classes to help us be better teachers. It was very well done and so inspiring. It always makes me want to be a better teacher. It ended with a very nice lunch. It was fun to talk to teachers and see the great dedication of these early morning teachers. One of the teachers was a young man from our home ward in Orem.
We stopped at Costco to see if we could find something for lunch on Monday. We start our teaching schedule this coming week. After we had a great idea. We had two great young people that got married from our singles ward and they had an open house. They lived over by the temple. Their reception started at 6:00 it was 2:45 and it would take us about an hour and half or longer to go home and come back. So we stopped by and they were home. We had a nice visit with them and then headed home.
It was a good thing because we needed to work on our lessons for next week. We are teaching another one of the four cornstone classes that BYU is now requiring all incoming students take. We are starting the course Jesus Christ and the Everlasting Gospel. I am really excited to spend an entire semester studying the life of Jesus Christ.
Professor Johns and I were talking on Friday. We were talking about the confederate flag and people that wanted that symbol wiped out. He made a statement that I have been thinking about ever since. He said, "If you white wash your history then you have no history at all."
