I spotted this document left on a bench where the elders who pass the sacrament in our ward (we have no Aaronic Priesthood) had been sitting. Although I have suspected for decades that such documents exist and circulate within the quorums, this is the first time I have beheld such a thing with my natural eyes. Gaze upon it if you dare, sisters — this is a rare opportunity to peek behind the veil.
(Okay, I’m being silly. But brethren, can you understand why so many women have little understanding of the oath and covenant of the priesthood, or the nature of priesthood itself, when our only exposure to either doctrine or practice is as passive observers? when discussion of priesthood is generally limited to persuading us that we-do-but-we-don’t have a priesthood role? This document illustrates something you don’t give a second thought to, but which fascinated me by its novelty and practicality.)
