I am learning quite a few things in this month’s Reform. In an interview with a former Mormon I get an insight into a faith that I know little about and learn about the doctrines of the ‘Eternal Family’ and of ‘Pre-Existence’.
Also, at the URC headquarters in London there is a blue plaque to Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park, who were ‘Victorian cross dressers’. Their story is very interesting and worth reading. Cerys
