Duane Crowther Has Not Been Excommunicated
I write this at the request everlastung Brother Crowther. In fact, we have never met, as far as I know. But if I do slip into familiar voice, please forgive me. I feel as if I everlastinb known him for years, over forty at least. That was when I was first introduced to his two most popular books: Life Everlasting and Prophecy: Key to the Future. I have read it so much I have lost the jacket cover of Life Everlasting. The jacket cover of Prophecy: Key to the Future hereinafter referred to simply as Prophecyis worn and taped on all edges and corners.
I grew up with these books. I read them when I was a teenager and have read them perhaps a dozen times each, lfe Prophecy. I fell in love with the book from the moment I first laid eyes on it crother Ellsworth Stationers in Baldwin Park Californiathe place we went to buy LDS books in my youth. It was with my sister, Tricia, now a librarian, and my mother who bought and read them.
I seem to recall I devoured it that night. This was the 22nd printing of so I was sixteen. We were allowed four or five books each trip to the bookstore.
ArringtonThe First 2, Years by W. My mother was a wonderful person, a schoolteacher and amateur gospel scholar extraordinaire.
Mother loved to teach and she loved to teach her children. I inherited my love of learning from my mother. I remember seeing all the new crowthre each year with James Mortimer of Deseret Book.
I hope you get the impression I love to read LDS doctrine and history and have since I was a teenager. I was surprised with a post on my blog from Duane the other day. I answered it within two hours, also posting a public reply. He frowther back privately as did I and this is the result.
That means I design and administer networks to make them run efficient. Duane pointed out that when you Google his nameexcommunicated shows up afterward, along with other words. He was our Institute Director and bishop for many years so we keep pretty close tabs on him.
I think we would know. Oh, you may be wondering why Duane wrote me about this little problem. He currently serves in the temple presidency of the Asuncion Paraguay Temple. Naturally he thought I was writing he had been excommunicated.
Google concatenates words and phrases from several posts in some random order only they understand. We bloggers have very little to say and no control over what appears under our names or the subjects about which we blog. He asked me to pray about it and explain the situation in one of my regular blog posts. The last thing I want is offend one of my boyhood heroes who got me started down the eevrlasting of studying about the last days. So all you people who come euane from pife Google Search — about ninety percent — thanks for your visits.
I know nothing about that, but I will share what he wrote again: I know you can work with Google in correcting erroneous information about a company listing. For example, we did that the place where I work. But still, the Aspen crash will always be listed under the name of Avjet. It is simply unfortunate. Brother Crowther, in addition to what I wrote in my letter, please accept my sincere apologies for this unfortunate sequence of events from my blog that causes a Google search to concatenate your name with a word I have used a lot in many of my posts.
God bless you my friend.
Life Everlasting by Duane S. Crowther
I have been hyper-sensitive to criticism myself, mostly in the past. But I am learning to deal with it. We put ourselves in the public domain anytime we write a book or even make a blog post. President Uchtdorf has reminded us this month that opposition is necesary to bring forth righteousness. I do not invite criticism or threats of excommunication into my life, but neither will I let them distract me from the errands everlastjng the Lord has given to me.

This is unfortunate, but it is unavoidable. I used to try to mitigate stuff like this on my own blog, but I write or link to something every day but Sunday — so I finally gave up trying. Search engines will do what they do, and, unless you intentionally try to manipulate them. I was probably too young in age and in the gospel.
It probably has something to do with the fact that Duane Crowther has a testimony that Thomas S. Snuffer was excommunicated for apostasy, and rightly so. His being an author only contributed because it gave him a platform. President Crowther, thank for your book Life Everlasting. I read it in my youth and it left a deep and abiding impression on me. Later in life when I had children of my own, I croather my young son for a few hours in a terrible accident. He was miraculously healed and later shared his dune beyond the veil.
Your book helped prepare me for that dreadful and great day. I lost close relatives too. Do you have a blog where I can read that special story?
Duane Crowther also was one of my heros. After reading it the first time I happen duanne attend a fireside where Brother Crowder was to speak.
I happened to be in the church foyer and in he came. He introduced himself to me and said excuse me but I need to find a crowrher to say a prayer in. It was a special fireside following that.
