Ether 12:23-27

Discussion: The Brother of Jared was a powerful writer, but it appears that he was not so confident in speaking to the people; Jared usually took care of that. Moroni, on the other hand, had great confidence in speaking, but admittedly felt inferior in writing. Do you think that Moroni was a bad writer? Remember that Moroni gives us some of the most quoted verses in The Book of Mormon: that famous missionary scripture, Moroni 10:3-5, the discourse on charity, Moroni 7:34-35, faith defined, Ether 12:6, and of course this verse about weakness. Obviously the Lord had made writing a strength for him. If he considered writing a weakness, what do you imagine his speaking was like?
