I was thinking that most religious traditions have purification rituals. Native Americans have kivas and such, Christians have baptism and penance, and Mormons have washing and anointing that we can become washed clean from the blood and sins of this generation.
But how do we become washed clean from the blood and sins of Mormonism? I know a lot of ex-Mormons who hold residual guilt for things they said and did as Mormons. I know I have my own regrets. Maybe it’s time for a purification ritual for me. Here are some ideas:
Dusting off my feet in front of the MTC or the temple.
Making a burnt offering of old garments or books.
Sacrificing a pork shoulder to my smoker.
Treat each day as a clean slate without any Mormonism in it.
