As was recently explored in a talk/post written by Stephanie at Diapers and Divinity, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that virtue = power. When we talk about virtue, a key part of it means sexual purity, but it can also include other facets of pure, true, clean living. When virtue is part of who we are, how we think, what we choose to do, it can allow us to feel God’s power and presence in our lives, have clear minds free from addiction or unhealthy preoccupation with pornography, vulgarity, violence, or harmful substances, have the potential for healthier relationships, and feel the peace of taking a stand for goodness.
A Facebook group called Voices for Virtue (over 72,000 people strong), is rallying for virtue this month, inviting others to join in with them in the effort. There will be four webcasts as part of this rally for virtue, featuring speakers Elaine Dalton, Brad Wilcox, John Hilton, and (TODAY), Dr. Thomas Holman, who will be speaking on Dating, Relating, and Marriage.
Voices for Virtue is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They welcome people of all faiths and walks of life, with a particular focus on youth and young adults (but all age groups on Facebook are welcome).
