LETTER: Urges people to be free about discussing faith issues

I served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints back in 1991 in France.

I ran into many people who were searching for truth in their lives.

Around town you might run into one of the missionaries serving here in Port Angeles.

They are 18- to 21-year-olds and they have put a hold on college, careers, dating and everything else for a couple years simply to come out and share the word of God and to uplift those who are down by giving inspiring messages.

Be kind to them.

You may even find that it’s liberating to speak to someone about your beliefs in a world where at times it seems politically incorrect to believe in right and wrong, to speak of God, and to believe in truth.

A modern-day Apostle, Elder Neil L. Andersen said, “The laws of man often move outside the boundaries set by the laws of God.”

Eternal truths may not align with the law of the land.

God’s laws are always higher than man’s laws.

Hold on to eternal truths.

Hold on to God.

We live in interesting times.

I have been pleased to meet many good faithful people since moving here last year.

While we may be hesitant at times to discuss religion and our belief in God, I’ve found many in our community have strong faith in God.

We live in a special place.

Take time to thank God, seek truth and seek him.

Jason Bringhurst,

Port Angeles
