    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Too Fast

In this month’s New Era is a story titled “Too Fast” about an LDS military pilot who has a spiritual impression to increase speed as he is bringing a large cargo plane in for a landing. The final statement by the copilot brings the story to a conclusion that may be somewhat predictable, but only in the context of LDS narrative.

That’s what I find remarkable about stories like this. They seem so common, and we often take them for granted as we’re flipping through the pages of the Church magazines, but these stories of miraculous, counterintuitive, irrational spiritual promptings are part of our collective heritage as Latter-day Saints. And it’s important that we share these kinds of stories with one another, if for no other reason than to assure one another that we’re not crazy when we follow the still, small voice.

  2. Good job on the new site. I look forward to reading more of these highlights. It’s especially valuable for those of us without subscriptions to all four of the Church magazines.

  3. Good job
