The language we use reveals how we think about the world — Our host shares his love of language, using The Princess Bride as an example — People who think all this attention to particular word use is ridiculous need to wake up, as exemplified by movements in politics as well as the Church — Singles programs versus support networks — Everything comes back to the mind — What good do we do when programs take priority over people? — What we do should support the people we say we serve
Our host gets sidetracked from the word hallelujah — Our host shares more details about his encounter with his former stake president that he cited in the monologue — In the gospel context, the married life is superior to the single life — Family of one versus individuals and families — Changing the culture from a family center to a Christ center really isn’t that controversial
Can our host keep his head intact while uttering the most vile LDS phrase ever? — The nature of language explains why that particular phrase is not friendly to singles — Everything is connected to how you think, so you change your thinking and you change your life — The Church has made some valiant if less effective attempts in this area — We should promote the use of general membership ward, or general ward for short — We’ll never be unified until we start using language that promotes that unity
