Once again I apologize for the withering of Keepa. I’m hopeful now that I can stay vertical rather than horizontal most days and will able to think moderately clearly again, so I’ll do my best to resurrect this poor blog.
Keepa posts are often built on trivia, those fascinating bits of history that are overlooked in more serious forums. I ran across one such bit today that brought tears to my eyes. Although I’m not able to flesh it out into a real post at the moment, perhaps it will reward your clicking over here today:
In 1947, German Mission President Walter Stover was finally able to visit Berlin after the end of World War II and hold a conference for whatever church members were able to reach the meetings. It was a successful conference, in part because President Stover was able to rent light bulbs for the day of the conference so that the Saints didn’t have to meet in the dark.
Rented light bulbs.
