    Mormon history has made Mormons insular in their faith. But so too are other faiths that built walls around them that are now colliding with the globalism of modern times. I think it's a good thing to bring people out of their protective shells or at least be exposed to a larger world. When my LDS mother was dying of cancer, the Catholic side of out family had more than one Mass said on her behalf. I don't know how the Mormon side of the family regarded that but I was deeply moved by the gestures of love.

    As a non-LDS member who has sojourned with the Mormons for over 30 years, I am very glad to see Professors Hamblin and Peterson continue to inform the LDS community of the beautiful traditions and "miracles" that have and are taking place in other faith traditions. This particular Easter light "miracle" wherein the fire of the Holy Spirit bursts forth at the church of the Holy Sepluchre
    is one that many Saints will just nod their heads and move on, because it does not resonate with their beliefs that such "miraculous" activity is to be found only in their one,true church.
    That is unfortunate because even Jesus said to his disciples who complained that some "miracle" workers were not of "their" group, "leave them alone".
