"You are of the tribe of Ephraim" 

by Aaron B
Last Sunday, I taught my Gospel Essentials class on "Priesthood Organization." One of the sub-themes of the lesson was the role of the "Patriarch." The Bishop plugged "patriarchal blessings" for the new members, and listed the duties of the patriarch, including that of "assigning lineage." A recent African-American convert approached me after the lesson, informed me that she had recently received her own patriarchal blessing, and asked: "Brother Brown, what exactly does it mean to "assign lineage"?"

What should I tell her?
