This is going to be a new portion of the website, where I look at some of the questions that have been submitted to the New Era since 1971, and either post witty social commentary, post my opinions on the question/answer, or offer insight into the mind of the 2010 teenager. The plan is to go through each month of the New Era, from 1971 to present, and once or twice-a-week offer my thoughts and experiences. For those of you keeping track at home, that’s (12 issues per year x 39 yrs), and if I’m doing it once a week, we’ll be at 468 weeks (or a year and 3 and a half months).

January 1971’s questions can be found here.

Because of this weekend’s General Conference, the posting schedule will be updated. My goal is to spend the weekend getting caught up on the lessons for Manual 2 so that I can be somewhat caught up. By my count, we should be at or around Lesson 39 (Moral Courage), giving us 11-12 lessons before the end of the year.

This lesson can be found here

I found it interesting that the objective specifically linked the faith in Christ of the young men to understanding the atonement better.  This thought stuck in my mind the entire time while I planned out this lesson.  I struggled, because dealing with sometimes rowdy 12 year olds can cause one to gloss over the important lessons that the boys need to take with them.  I didn’t want to use hokey analogies.  I wanted to treat this as serious.  The other thing that stood out to me was in the “Note” section of the lesson:

This lesson provides you an opportunity to help each young man understand the life and mission of the Savior. Some young men are entering the mission field without understanding the atonement of Jesus Christ and the ways it blesses their lives and the lives of others.

Wow.  So this needed more than object lessons and analogies.  This is serious stuff.
