We return from summer vacation with a pair of videos about my favorite summertime activity: rock climbing. Meet Matthieu Bennasar, who heads up an IT security consultancy and escapes the pressure of his job by climbing up sheer, vertical rock faces (it really is very stress-relieving, trust me).
Next, we have a Mormon Messages video for teens. I don’t know if I can ever hear the words “free soloing,” “carabiner,” or “pitch” again without hearing a mental echo of the words in Richard G. Scott’s inimitable* voice, as he narrates an excerpt from his April 2013 conference talk, “The Atonement Can Secure Your Peace and Happiness.” It would have been the pièce de résistance to hear him say “Gri-Gri,” but no such luck. Still, this is well worth a watching for the spectacular red rock views.
* Unless you’re the guy who made the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup video.
Each Fast Sunday, we feature a video from the Mormon.org website. We invite our readers to check back each month for a new favorite, and to share these posts with your friends and family. (Previous posts archive.)
