A preview, just for my blogger friends, of what sorts of topics my pre-mission oration may or may not address:
The promise of minor theophany
Neal A. Maxwell's "micromanifestations"
Cellphones (in conjunction with the 14th Article of Faith: "We believe in making an object lesson out of absolutely anything")
Testimony (at the recommendation of my bishop, who is allowing me to grab-bag with this talk)
C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity
