Dear Friends

Have you been looking for an opportunity to share the gospel, but don't know what to do?  Recently the brethren have been encouraging members to get involved in the online conversation about the church by writing blogs, comments and articles online.

In April, 2008, Elder M. Russell Ballard commented:

"I probably don’t need to tell you that there is much questionable information and even outright falsehoods about the Church on the Internet and in the media–much bad mixed with the good . . . [people] hear harsh — sometimes mean-spirited — criticisms or accusations. Many want answers, and the places they are most likely to seek those answers are either on the Internet or from their Mormon acquaintances . . .

"Where appropriate, [Church leaders] will engage with the media whether it’s the traditional, mainstream media or the new media of the Internet. But Church leaders can’t do it all, especially at the grass-roots, community level. While we do speak authoritatively for the Church, we look to our responsible and faithful members to engage personally with blogs, to write thoughtful, online letters to news organizations, and to act in other ways to correct the record with their own opinions . . .

"So let me pose a question. What are you prepared to do about it? If you are a member of the Church, what is your responsibility during this period of unusual attention and debate? Interest has continued at a high level and probably will for some time. If a national conversation is going on about the Church, are you going to be an active participant or a silent observer?" (Speech given at Brigham Young University Management Society in Washington, D.C., April 19, 2008.)

Likewise, Elder Dallin H. Oaks recently said:

"We live in a time when some misrepresent the beliefs of those they call Mormons and even revile us because of them. When we encounter such misrepresentations, we have a duty to speak out to clarify our doctrine and what we believe. We should be the ones to state our beliefs rather than allowing others the final word in misrepresenting them." (Conference, April 2008)
