Twice now, I have been asked to lead the lessons in Elder Quorum, as part of my calling.
Both times, I have had grand ideas but the delivery, to me, seems to fall very short.
Perhaps I am being taught to be more humble, to rely more on the Spirit to be the teacher, and less upon other means, such as props, video clips and my own "wisdom."
Perhaps I am a glutton for punishment but I welcome the chance to try again. This time, I resolve to clear away every visual aid, every prop, everything except the basic scriptures and the lesson manual.
We will have a clutter-free discussion.
Or so I hope.
We might just have a three-minute lesson.
