  1. We'll Sing All Hail to Jesus' Name This rendition by BYU is fantastic. I love the clever addition of a verse from Eliza R. Snow's "How Great the Wisdom and the Love." The imagery of the hymn is profound and moving to me.
  2. I'm serving as a bishop and have previewed all the materials. It is ***not*** true that weekly meetings are to stop. They are to continue. Weekly for youth and twice a month for children.
  3. There is no directive to do that. And, it's a terrible idea. In our ward, a theme is picked for the meeting and then individual topics are assigned as a question. For example-- Theme: Revelation Topics: What are some practical ways to increase my sensitivity to the Spirit? What role does counseling with others play in revelation? How can I receive personal revelation? Who can (and can't) I receive revelation for?
  4. I am the bishop of our ward. I am also a pianist and organist. Sadly, I end up playing the organ about 2/3 of Sundays and even at many stake meetings because so few people can play any more. Our ward has nearly 40 youth, and only 4 kids are in piano lessons (two of which are mine!). It's a dying art, and a really sad thing.
  5. I remember listening to this, too. I've spent the last 30 minutes looking through videos and couldn't find it...
  6. "Wherefore, I, the Lord, command and revoke, as it seemeth me good" (Doctrine and Covenants 56:4). "I command and men obey not; I revoke and they receive not the blessing. Then they say in their hearts: This is not the work of the Lord, for his promises are not fulfilled. But wo unto such, for their reward lurketh beneath, and not from above. And now, I give unto you further directions..." (Doctrine and Covenants 58:32-34)
  7. Our ward is about 45 minutes away from the temple, and a full 10% of our active ward members are currently temple workers (including a sealer). I think that's probably an unusually high number of workers, and yet we are constantly getting pleas for more workers. If every ward had 10% of their active members serving in the temple, I think there would be more temple workers than they'd know what to do with.
  8. Bishops, bishoprics, stake presidents, stake presidencies, etc are no longer exempt from being called as temple ordinance workers. I got an email about an hour ago from our temple presidency confirming that. I'm not sure I have the time to take on working in the temple on a regular basis, but I am happy that it is now an option!
  9. It's sad that we live in a culture where discussion is no longer allowed without someone trying to "score points." It saddens me that Jim Bennett had even had to make such a blog post to set the record straight.
  10. Not to mention the kind of courage and "guts" it takes to do something like cut open a chest, saw through ribs, and pull out a beating heart....
  11. This isn't really accurate. I'd say some of the signs/penalties are similar, and a couple of the tokens are nearly identical. I can't/won't comment further.
