I think I’m going to learn to sign some of my idiosynchratic phrases, so at least my motions will make some sense. Great link to an earlier post. About 10 months ago, I had Richard L. Bushman sign my copy after a Harvard Alumni gathering in Utah County (my friend was the alumn). He asked me if I was “clinging to the very cliff of belief.” I replied, “Um, yeah, I guess so,” and felt weird,like he might have this power to see into my heart. Or, more likely, he just hears a lot from faithful doubters, and I was nothing new. Reply jana March 21, 2008 - 6:18 am Did you say something to him to lead him to believe that you were doubting? Or does he just say that to everyone who gets a book signed? (note: he didn’t say that to me, but I was at an LDS fireside-like event in a chapel) Reply Alisa March 23, 2008 - 5:33 am It was a more intimate setting, and I had mentioned that our deep discussion that night had really come at an important time in my spirituality, which is when he launched into the dramatic description of my questioning soul. I think it was kinda funny, that he probaby just thinks we shouldn’t take every little thing so sersiously. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
