quotes tagged with 'historicity'

I don't know of any institution that has had complete peace with its historians, with its storytellers. ... I am not afraid of history. I don't know of anybody who's afraid of history. Whatever our history is, that's our history. That's it. Whatever. I know what I love. I know what makes me a Latter-day Saint. I ... had faith before I had doubt, and I have faith after any doubts have been explored. ...

You don't want somebody else telling you your history, and therefore I would like to tell my children, and the children of the church, the youth of the church collectively, I'd like to be having them hear it from friends rather than enemies. I'm just doubtful about the motives of some. ... But there is not anything anybody can say to me that will make me afraid of my history. ... But I think we are genuinely anxious to teach in a way that is appropriate and enlivening.
