I have a love-frustration relationship with the scriptures. I was called to be a Sunday school teacher for 14-15 year olds. It's good in the sense that I dedicate more time to reading and pondering the scriptures, but it's frustrating when I come across something that challenges my testimony, logic, and ethics.
Every year, we teach a different book and rotate every 4 years: Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants. When I began teaching, I started with the O.T. over 2 years ago -- Ugh! I'd be okay with some things then come across stuff that reminded me why I had been an atheist. I've resolved to not take things literally.

streets lined with the flags. (Hard to see in this photo).
