    “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

Mormonad—Wish You Were Here

Mormonad—Wish You Were HereThis month’s Mormonad in the New Era is one that I believe all of us can relate to. On top it says “Wish You Were Here,” and the picture below shows a boy and a girl sitting across from one another, each with a sundae in front of him or her. The girl’s sundae has been completely eaten (showing the passage of time), whereas the boy’s appears to be untouched. The girl’s face is wearing an expression of boredom and frustration. The kicker, of course, is that the boy’s attention is fixed squarely on the screen of his cell phone, which he is holding in front of him. He appears to have been text messaging for quite some time, oblivious to the sundae and the girl right in front of his face.

If you know anyone who ignores his or her immediate surroundings—or, more importantly, the people he or she has supposedly chosen to be with—just to talk or text on a cell phone, then you may want to send him or her this Mormonad. By the way, the scripture it refers to is Matthew 7:12 (the Golden Rule).

  1. So true. And of course, when I am in front of my much larger computer screen, I tend to focus in on that instead of the people around me. There is a much larger lesson here than cell phones…Love the MormonAds!
