Goes to show that there is usually a desk between the two.
On my LDS mission I was assigned the task to interview potential members of the church for baptism. I realized that I was uncomfortable with those words as a leader as well.
I hear from some that the interview can be problematic. I get that. I hear that there has been abuse by some bishops. My experience in the church is that these are one-off scenarios. They are not the norm. And in a culture that is becoming hyper-aware of potential for abuse, they will be fewer and fewer. And that is as it should be. Should this conversation be happening? Yes.
