I’m really excited to teach this lesson. I find the topic deeply therapeutic. The strains and tensions of Mormon gender relations have recently been common topics in certain Mormon circles (esp. across the Bloggernacle). In that light, the idea of teaching the Priesthood about the Relief Society (RS), and its core focus on humanitarian service, strikes me as deliciously ironic (though, “irony” isn’t quite the right term here) and subversive. I’ll try to explain what I mean as I go.
