New General Authority, Elder Kevin Scott Hamilton: Choose to do good (LDS Church News) (May 25, 2013)
Elder Kevin Scott Hamilton describes himself as "the product of a conversion and a rescue." The story goes back to his birth in March 1955 in Wenatchee, Wash., to Norman Russell and Kay Hamilton. "After I was born, my mother had all these questions about life," related Elder Hamilton, who was sustained at the general conference in April as a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. "She talked to her minister, but didn't receive the answers she was looking for, so she talked to one of our friends who was a Latter-day Saint, Richard Pratt (a good Mormon name)."

What does a Mormon bishop do? (Jewish Journal) (May 25, 2013)
Following my recent ordination as a Mormon bishop, many Jewish friends have written to ask me what my new responsibilities are. Although I’ve only been at it for a month, I’ll do my best to outline my duties for my readers. Like rabbis, LDS bishops are chosen to be leaders of congregations.

In addition, because Mormons are generally expected to attend the nearest congregation, the authority of a bishop is restricted to a defined geographical area. In my case, the borders of my ward (congregation) in Los Angeles are Fairfax Avenue on the west, Western Avenue on the east, Beverly Boulevard on the north, and Slauson Avenue on the south.

It made national and even international news, playing against the presumption that members of the Utah-based faith were at odds with their gays members and friends. This year, the group Mormons Building Bridges plans to do it all again at next weekend’s parade — and is expecting even more marchers, perhaps up to 500.
