  1. It’s nice to think of children getting these basic snippets of church history. It makes ‘lived religion’ a part of their cultural heritage.

    I often wonder about these early missionaries being invited (allowed) to preach to congregations. Do you think it would help or hurt if we were a little more open with our pulpits?

  2. I dunno, charlene.

    Brigham Young was pretty free with the Tabernacle podium, with one exception — preachers from ex-Mormon groups were not welcome. But just about any other preacher passing through Utah was invited to preach (that was a fairly limited group, of course).

    I think it was a lot more common in the 19th century to exchange pulpits than it is today, anywhere.
