Fat Mo here & I’m at church. Early. For the last three days I’ve been working through an article in April 2015’s Ensign called, “The Savior’s Selfless and Sacred Sacrifice”. The article is based on Boyd K. Packer’s (BKP) understanding of the Atonement. The article is long, approximately 2400 words and I focused on 1137 of those words as most of the others were words of no special mark (for now).
The pattern I’ve noticed the most is the article, in part, reads like a list poem. Obviously, BKP loves the Atonement & what it does for all humanity. I am examining his last conference talk before his death this week also. It isn’t nearly as long, but has much the same feel to it where BKP focuses on what he considers is the most important aspect of the church’s entire program: marriage in the temple and the miracle of the Atonement as it applies to married people.
