The Four Centuries of Mormon Stories Contest brings together very short stories about Mormon experience in the 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd centuries. Last week, six stories (read and discuss them here, here, here, here, here and here) took us through the first two centuries, and today on Modern Mormon Men, we're getting to the age of the internet and beyond with a discussion of Wm Morris's The Reactivator.
The Reactivator is a short story. Please go read it and then return here to respond in the comments to any aspect of the story, including the issues raised in the following discussion questions:
1) Serving through a quorum: hip or weird?
2) This piece depicts a live visit while making reference to digital modes of networking. How do you see the two ways of reaching others working as modes of connection in the Church today?
3) How much do you identify with this piece's protagonist? At what points in the story do you feel closest to or furthest from him?
