“Greek Hors d’Oeuvres,” Ensign, June 1982, 65
In our day-to-day quest for perfection, we sometimes forget to appreciate the beautiful qualities of people outside of our religion. But living on an Army post brought us into close contact with people from all areas of the United States with many different backgrounds. Our new friends were good people from various religions; and despite the differences, they had several common characteristics. They were thoughtful, kind, and loving.
This was made especially clear to me as four of us gathered at one friend’s home to make hors d’oeuvres for my Cultural Refinement lesson on Greece. These women took time to help me prepare something special for the sisters in my ward—and I, in turn, was able to tell them about Relief Society. We have now gone our separate ways; but this particular morning was a testimony that we are all God’s children, to be loved by him and to love one another.—Veronica Taylor Wolthius, Stansbury Park, Utah
