Discussion Questions for Graduation! To What?

Discussion questions for William Morris’s newsletter on Marden J. Clark’s essay “Whose Yoke is Easy?”

Here are the discussion questions for the sixteenth email in the AMV Deep Dive of Marden J. Clark’s essay collection Liberating Form.

If you haven’t signed up for the email, you can read it (and sign up to receive future ones) here: Graduation! To What?

Please note that comments are moderated, and the goal is to make this a place welcome to Mormons of all stripes (as well as folks with an interest in Mormonism).

  1. What’s the best advice to college graduates you’ve ever encountered?
  2. What barriers do you encounter when trying to continue to learn? What domains of knowledge/creativity, etc. are of most interest to you right now?
  3. Clark is quite taken with his dual-spirals image. Is there imagery–poetic or scientific–you find especially interesting, useful, beautiful to represent something related to Mormonism, spirituality, life, etc.?

    These are tangential, but 1) I keep thinking about how the Book of Mormon’s big themes are completely relevant to our current political situation, but we still tend to use the book more for platitudes and vaguer conceptualizations.

    2) I’ve also been thinking about the nature of imagination: what we imagine it to be and what we have imagined its purpose to be historically. I learned a lot on the topic here.
