Today is Pioneer Day and while Pioneers are totally awesome, I think more of us modern day Mormons are more affected by the pioneering ideas of our religious practice. I would love to hear what pioneering makes you smile.

I think the idea behind Visiting and Home Teaching is profound. Sure, we all fail it or detest it from time to time, and it can feel downright awkward to have assigned friends, but the idea of having congragants look out for each other in an organized and mostly not haphazard manner is, in my opinion, the heart of our congregations.

What pioneering do you find in our religion?
