”Converted Unto the Lord”
These chapters tell of the dramatic conversion experience of an entire group of people, the so-called Anti-Nephi Lehis. We will discuss conversion and transformation. How do we change? What baggage do we bear from our upbringings that may hinder this transformation?
There are also terrible stories of violence in these chapters… what is the relationship between conversion and death? Should martyrdom ever be considered worth the cost? What is worth dying for? Pacifism and Violence are key related issues.
Finally, Alma concludes with a beautiful prayer with implications concerning redemption history, agency, and how God interacts with different groups of his children.
Look forward to an engaging discussion with Debbie, Whitney, Adam and Jason.
