Link arms across the aisle


Church News
Across The Isle During the summer of 2017, Elder Matthew S. Holland, now a General Authority Seventy in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, took a sabbatical to Oxford University in England. There he met the Rev.

Dr. Teal. “We can't be a part of this culture which just writes people off if they're different from us.”
