I find it difficult to see the Nativity in the creation of a new ward or stake
because the old one got too big. The people are already there; they don't come
in slowly or move to be in that new ward. I can see the connection
more with small branches or stakes where there have never been branches or
stakes before. But here in Utah I have been in several wards and two stakes and
never moved. It seemed more like a parting than a birth.
Amen, And now our little branch is the center for two stakes thanks to the faith
of Forrest and Lavon Jefferson.
