Below is the setup for the discussion.
Have you ever played the word game Boggle? 16 dice with letters of the alphabet are shook up inside a container and then come to rest in squares on a grid. A timer is set for 2-3 minutes, and players write down all the words they can find that connect together in any direction.
At the end of the time, one player starts reading off their word list and if anyone has that word, everyone crosses it off. Each player is left with the unique words they found that nobody else found.
On Sunday, March 28 at 2 pm, we “played” a version of this in an experiment in studying a single verse of scripture, trying to:
Mosiah 3:8. “And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary.”
“We should not be haphazard in our reading but rather develop a systematic plan for study. There are some who read to a schedule of a number of pages or a set number of chapters each day or week. This may be perfectly justifiable and may be enjoyable if one is reading for pleasure, but it does not constitute meaningful study. It is better to have a set amount of time to give scriptural study each day than to have a set amount of chapters to read. Sometimes we find that the study of a single verse will occupy the whole time.” – Howard W. Hunter, GC Oct. 1979
