All That We Share

A few days ago I came across this video on YouTube entitled “All That We Share”. It has a great unifying message that I wish I saw more in the LDS Church, which has traditionally been an exclusive group. I love the idea of “us” as humanity, where everyone is part of a greater whole. The church attempts to emulate this by grouping the saints into an “us,” but in the process, it pushes away those who aren’t members and sets them aside as “worldly.” I spent years believing that everything outside of the church was sad and unfulfilling. That thinking blinded me to a lot of beauty that is out there in the world. Sure, there is pain in the world, but there is pain in the church as well. The world has so much to offer, and there is so much that we can learn from it.
