Last weekend, our ward celebrated the anniversary of the priesthood commemoration by sending all the fathers and sons on a camp-out. As a feminist couple, Nate and I are troubled by this–If the priesthood is available to all, shouldn’t all be invited to celebrate its restoration?**
Fortunately, this is the sixth year in a row that my husband has either chosen not to go or missed the announcement about it entirely. So we’ve got a whole year until we have to worry about this again. I’m interested in what others do. Is our ward an anomaly?
**Actually, I’m not a big camper. If this is our ward’s chosen method of celebrating the priesthood commemoration, then, I’m ok missing out, but I want my daughter to have the choice as to whether or not she wants to celebrate in this way.
