“Did Stir Them Up Again in Remembrance of the Lord”

Brant Gardner

Once again the necessity of facing adversity brings a temporary respite to the Nephite internal contention. When the famine was in full force they were too hungry to worry about contentions. When they faced a mutual outward, dangerous foe, they were focused on that external threat, and had no time for internal contentions. Unfortunately the abating of the contentions is not the same as the removal of the causes of the contentions. They will return.
