Bravery Bulletin – Bishop Sets the Tone
Bravery Bulletin blog posts acknowledge regular people behaving in ways befitting a disciple of Christ that are powerful in their quiet simplicity. Those spotlighted in the Bravery Bulletin are often chosen because of their gentle, and seemingly simple, acts toward LGBTQI/SSA issues and people.
Acknowledgement is given to a Salt Lake City bishop who, instead of saying nothing until a letter from the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles with instructions and guidance -concerning LGBTQI/SSA couples- for congregational leaders throughout the United States arrived for him to read, gave his flock some guidance and words to ponder, setting the bar high for them, in a kind and loving way.
From a member of his ward:
“He said that he knew we were probably expecting him to read a letter from the Church Office Building, but that he hadn’t received it yet. He then said that from what he had seen in the media, the important part was that all people deserve respect and civility, that there is a reason for the separation of church and state, and that no one should be discriminated against.”
