Invitation to Celebrate “A Century of Honor”–100 Years of Scouting in the LDS Church

The following event was announced over the pulpit in church on Sunday.  I invite all scouts–old and young, members of the LDS Church as well as friends of other faiths–to join with us in celebrating the “A Century of Honor,” with music, history, and inspirational words from scouting and LDS Church leaders.

Boy scouting made a tremendous, positive impact on my life, and I look forward to serving and paying it forward to other boys who will become men through the powerful programs of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Role of Science

Encountered this thought-provoking anonymous quote:

The role of science is not to provide everlasting truth;

but rather, to provide a modest obstacle to everlasting error. 
- Author Unknown

Quoted by Nansel and Szlazak in Somatic Dysfunction and the Phenomenon of Visceral Disease Simulation: A Probable Explanation for the Apparent Effectiveness of Somatic Therapy in Patients Presumed to be Suffering from True Visceral Disease.

A couple of searches lead me to a reliable source of the quote

“The aim of science is not to open the door to infinite wisdom, but to set a limit to infinite error.”

Highlights from Homecoming 2013

National University of Health Sciences Homecoming 2013 was wonderful.  I was blessed to be invited to participate thanks to the generous offer of Bart Green, DC, MSEd, DACBSP. Three days of continuing educational lectures, from basic science (neurology of food addiction) to ethical considerations of practice; delicious food and fine dining; impressive ceremonial events–the weekend was full of many memories.  I felt impressed to share some of them with you, so I’m taking some time to do so.

In this post, I will share some of the words of President Brimhall; in subsequent posts, I will share other uplifting experiences from Homecoming.  

The most inspirational event of all of Homecoming was clearly the Inauguration Ceremony of the new President Joseph Stiefel.  The two talks that touched me deeply were the Ceremonial Address given by visiting president Joseph Brimhall from University of Western States, and President Stiefel’s speech following his inauguration.

President Brimhall The message from President Brimhall was two-fold: first, Wisdom is the application of knowledge to create a better world, to make the world a better place, to learn what is of value. He quoted a poem from T.S. Eliot’s 1934 play The Rock:

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

Second, in the storm-winds of the changing healthcare landscape, in the uncertainty of the current economic challenges, we must not stand back, afraid; we must work together to not only survive, but to thrive.  On this note, he shared the inspiring thought:

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass;
it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

Source: Vivian Greene quotes, GoodReads.com

President Brimhall concluded his remarks with the following insights:

  1. Today matters; the choice you make today will determine if the world is–or is not–a better place tomorrow.
  2. People matter; “every person in this room matters,” said President Brimhall.

This resonated with me profoundly.  To these inspiring words, I feel to add that each person has unique gifts, individual contributions to make; therefore, each of us has the responsibility to make decisions and take actions today so that the world will be a better place tomorrow.

Esse Quam Videri!
