Last year, I enjoyed being a part of the Gospel Essentials class in our ward. Before I was called to be a teacher in the Primary, I attended this Sunday School class regularly. We met in a room with a long table around which we all could gather and discuss, as a group of about 10 or less. Men and women of all ages sat at that high council table, discussing the gospel topic of the day. My husband and I worked to base comments off of scripture, and clarify doctrine as needed. I appreciated being able to learn from other opinions and respectfully disagree about some things. It brought a humbling spirit of learning and growth when people were thoughtful- not defensive or dismissive.
