I must tell you about my dear Aunt Alice, from whom I have learned some wonderful lessons. What a woman she is! She lives in Cardston and is now ninety-three years of age. If you were ever to see her when she was dressed up, you would find her wearing a perky little hat, a delicate chiffon scarf tied at her neck—"to cover the wrinkles," she says—a bright smile on her face, and a twinkle in her eye. A couple of years ago, her son took her to a Saturday night stake dance. This was a happy occasion, she was excited to report to me. She told me that several people had asked her to dance. Her excitement reminded me of a conversation I might have had with a girlfriend fifty years ago.

“We all have crosses we’re carrying,” former YSA Bishop Richard Ostler said. “To understand someone’s cross, we’ve kind of got to go there with them, listen to their story, and then we’re fully able to mourn with them or comfort them or walk with them.”

If you’re like me — a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — you have a bishop. (Members of smaller congregations who have a branch president instead of a bishop, don’t tune out. I’m also talking to you.)

About his original decision to go undercover as a homeless man, Bishop Musselman told the Deseret News,“As a bishop, I try to always be as giving as I can, and I was surprised at my own inability to have compassion. . . . I thought about some ways I could somehow convey the importance of not being critical … and sometimes the best way to do that is through experiences that go beyond just a talk in church. And so I just laid awake many nights just thinking about what I could do, and then this kinda popped into my brain.”

Baptism is not the last step to conversion. In the case of one bishop, it was just his first step in what became a very long, rocky, and interesting road to finally accepting the Church.

I mentioned previously that ward leaders would soon be able to manage home and visiting teaching and callings on LDS.org from any internet-connected device without having to use MLS on the computer at the church. It’s now here. (At least for my ward. If you can’t get access as described in this article, don’t worry. It will be coming to your ward very soon.)

This week as I’ve perused pictures and pondered the memories of my own children’s baptisms, I noted that one of the strongest and most colorful memories isn’t from the last; it’s from the first. And it didn't unfold during the service. It hit before it began.
