  1. I wish I was actually going to be able to make it to the symposium. Sadly, I have to stay in Texas, so Casey will be reading the paper at the symposium. It was nice of him to let me co-author a portion of it though.

  2. This turned out to be somewhat low key in nature, but I was able to listen to Stapley’s paper on Joseph F. Smith and the transition from a folk/oral liturgical tradition that prevailed throughout 19th Century Mormonism, along with Craig Ostler’s excellent presentation on JFS and Priesthood and Church Government.

    I was presenting in a session that all dealt with JFS as a family man with Mark Ogletree and J. B. Haws. It was surprising how well the three presentations dovetailed with each other.

    I missed out on the Keynote Friday evening with Elder Ballard, but George Tate’s paper on WWI, the Spanish Flu, and Joseph F. Smith’s revelation on the Redemption of the Dead was outstanding as well. Overall the conference was narrower in context, but worth the effort.
