"We must the onward path pursue"I don't know if he really understood what I was saying, but he is a smart kid, and I think he does whether he admits it or not.
We have to keep going forward, doing what is right, no matter what.
"As wider fields expand to view,"
Especially now that our view of the world is wider, with our gay friends, and us wanting them to be happy and be able to get married.
"And follow him unceasingly,"
We have to just keep following Christ, no matter what.
"Whate'er our lot or sphere may be."
No matter what comes into our lives, whatever we have to deal with, whatever makes our individual world or "sphere", we must still follow Christ and try to be like him.
Do you see how much this applies to our lives right now? If you sing this with feeling tomorrow, like you really understand it and believe it, I will be bawling my eyes out, and that is a good thing.
So a further message to all of my gay or straight friends out there: no matter what church you choose, even if you have to leave the LDS church because of pain and certain circumstances, please know that Christ lives, and I believe we must each continue to follow him and keep him at the center of our lives. I realize it is possible to do that without attending any church, but associating with some church that will help us remember how important it is to keep Christ in our lives makes it so much easier. At least that is what I think.
Just my two cents.
