The Spoken Writ


And this is the ensample unto them, that they shall speak as they are moved upon by the Holy Ghost.

And whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be scripture, shall be the will of the Lord, shall be the mind of the Lord, shall be the word of the Lord, shall be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation. D&C 68:3-4

A major part of my gospel study involves listening to audio – General Conference talks, BYU devotionals, and audiobooks. It's all good stuff, but every now and then, I come across something that I want to keep track of and remember. Something that really stands out. Something that I'll want to study again, or come back to when I have a speaking assignment, or a lesson to prepare.

As I thought about how I wanted to record these, I finally settled on doing it as a podcast. I have personal reasons that suit my workflow behind this decision, but the interesting part of it is that I can make it a public resource – anyone who wants to can subscribe and follow along. Comment. Share your thoughts. Discuss. My current vision for this is primarily a podcast – subscribe using iTunes, and you'll get the best LDS audio as I come across it. (That's “best”, according to my definition, which is subject to fluctuation over time.) You're also free to interpret this like a blog. With each post, I'll try to include a little blurb about why I like it. These are primarily my notes to myself, but I hope you'll find them useful, or at least interesting.
