Ward council can often get a little snoozy. On one such snoozy occasion, on my mission, a brother stood up to share a spiritual thought. He started talking about an experience he'd had recently, yada yada. Heads were beginning to droop, the Relief Society president was flipping through Visiting Teaching reports. My companion's head nodded (and not in agreement). The good brother doggedly opened his scriptures up flipped to a section, and said, "One scripture I really found erotic was..."
Erotic? I chirked up. Was anyone else hearing this? Were we about to get a quote from Song of Solomon? I looked around. No one had even flinched.
"...so yeah, I just thought I'd share that with you. It really was erotic to me," he concluded, and sat down. The meeting went on without a hitch.
And now I share this with you, because really? Erotic instead of evocative??
