Out of obscurity...

A recent issue of NewsWeek features a cover story about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, of which I'm a member. The article is one of the more positive and accurate that I've seen in the mainstream media (that's not to say it's perfect, but it's pretty good nonetheless).
Reading this brings to mind the verse in the Doctrine and Covenants in which the church is foretold to "come forth out of obscurity and darkness." I believe that as the church continues to grow and become more and more visible, we'll see more of this kind of coverage. Not all of it will be as kind, I'm sure, but I think people are noticing the goodness in the lives of its members.
