On the sweetness of Mormon life.
The Young Men’s lesson is on repentance. We read a verse. “Forsake your sins,” it says.

Silence. Blank looks.
On one face, something dawns.
Young man: I know. It’s like when you break up with a girl and she says, oh my gosh, can we still be friends, and you say, NO.
