God is the Gardener (Hugh B. Brown)

God is the Gardener (Hugh B. Brown)
Hugh B. Brown, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
BYU Graduation, May 1968
“Some of you, as you go forward, are going to meet with disappointments. Perhaps many disappointments. Some of them crucial. Sometimes you will wonder whether He has forgotten you. Sometimes you may even wonder if He lives and where He’s gone. But in these times when so many are saying God is dead, and when so many are denying His existence, I think I could not leave with you a better message than this: God is aware of you, individually. He knows who you are and what you are. And furthermore, He knows what you are capable of becoming.”
