It all looks a little fuzzy and confusing.
My question of the night is: why haven't we come up with a better way of moving through legislative proposals than Roberts Rules of Order? There's gotta be something better.
Anyhow...here's a shot of one of my favorite passages in the book of proposed legislation. It's a little blurry, but maybe that adds to the effect. I took the shot around 10:30 tonight, before we spent another hour slogging on.
Here's the bus ride back to my distant hotel.
But first: a happy birthday shout-out to ForeverKC. (Recognizing that, technically, it's not her b-day anymore, at least in Texas. The party in California could still be going on. But it would have to be without her, since she's partyin' down here at the ol' General Conference, too.)
My little bright moment of the day was the 10 minutes in which we took a "recess" from our formal meeting for the purpose of genuine discussion. The tone of the meeting changed in our little sub-committee. My desires that we would create more space in our definition of marriage and of what healthy, holy sexual relationships might be didn't come true, but the conversation was much better.
I'll take what I can get...
Here's hoping for the Spirit's movement tomorrow!
