Profound discussion of the Mormon Faith

I was recently emailed a link to this article. It contains a video segment of a 20 year old young woman, Rachel Esplin, who is president of the Harvard Latter-day Saint Student Association, answering questions commonly posed to those of the Mormon faith. Journalist Sally Quinn is the one interviewing the panel of people representing different religions.

Rachel is open, honest, and handles herself with dignity, and I firmly believe that she does a wonderful (and true) job representing the general beliefs of the church. This interview includes discussion on temple garments, why Temple ordinances are kept "secret", beliefs of Christ, and Mormon beliefs about the experiences of Joseph Smith.

This movie is lengthy--21 minutes, but it is very worth the time, especially toward the end.
