The new instruction model requires us to depend on the Lord — Our host shares his feelings about his previous ward and how that situation led him to pray for a better one in which he could grow and feel needed — Our host shares his experiences with his new calling, which includes constant praying, pondering, and seeking guidance in what preparations to make — We don’t need to worry about how everything fits together when we play our part well and then trust the Lord to do the rest — We all need to feel like we’re needed and making a meaningful contribution — We don’t necessarily need a calling to feel that way — The new instruction model helps us prepare for the Savior’s Second Coming
Our host recounts some of his experiences from his previous ward — His new ward provides a sense of belonging because the members act with interest in others — There’s something about the seating arrangement in the new model of instruction — The old model made it easier to feel isolated from the ward — We need a Christ-centered culture, not a family-centered one — You can’t be pro-Christ and not be pro-family, but you can be pro-family and not pro-Christ — The new instruction model moves us closer to that Christ-centered culture — Many singles without children tune out when presented with lessons on marriage and family in general membership wards — The new instruction model helps us feel more a part of our wards despite our differences — We can build Zion for real when everyone minsters to everyone, and the new instruction model helps us do that — We need to stop putting people into boxes
We have too much binary thinking in the Church — We think singles can feel comfortable in church only in singles wards — Separating people by marital status creates the family-centered culture that challenges many LDS singles — We should only one type of ward, and that is the general membership ward — The new instruction model is a step in that direction — We need to care for each other like people in the City of Enoch — The most telling and important part of Moses 7:18 is the last part — We need to foster connection with others, and the new instruction model gives us such opportunities — Our host shares more details about the experience he shared towards the end of the monologue — We singles should not tune out during marriage and family lessons in general membership wards — We have a responsibility to contribute what we can, and that can make the difference someone else needs
