Play pictures

I’ve been meaning to post some pictures from our Stake production of Savior of the World. Here they are:

Contrast

December 20, 2011

Two men who were leaders of their nations died this past weekend, and the contrast between them could hardly be greater. Vaclav Havel was an honest and courageous man who helped lead not only his own country but also the rest of Eastern Europe to greater freedom and prosperity. Kim Jong-il, on the other hand, was a megalomaniac whose policies kept his country poor and isolated. It’s quite a coincidence that they left this world so close together.

Busy

December 9, 2011

We’ve been really busy the past few weeks. Sam entered the MTC on Wednesday. Julia, David, and I have parts in our stake’s production of Savior of the World: His Birth. (David has the big part this time.) We had rehearsals Tuesday and Wednesday and last night was opening night. We’ll perform again tonight and tomorrow afternoon and evening; the evening performances are at 7:00 pm. and tomorrow’s matinee is at 3:00 pm; the address is 1000 E. Rutherford Lane.
