Rumors of Changes to Temple Worship

Recommended Posts

That particular covenant is what has solidified, preserved, and sanctified the Gui marriage. We both take it very seriously, but there is no subservience involved.

How is a woman covenanting to hearken to her husband's counsel when a man makes no such covenant to his wife not a form of subservience?  At a minimum, there is an unequal relationship established by covenant!

What about children that attend and participate in a sealing as they haven't participated in the endowment.  

Awesome point.

As an ordinance worker, I've not heard anything about mandatory meetings in early January. Perhaps that is a regional thing.

 

When I worked in the temple back in 2005 (IIRC), we had a meeting in January where President Hinckley's changes to initiatory were explained along with details of how the updated ordinance was to be performed.  I only worked in the temple less than a year so I don't know if these January meetings were regular or not.

I do like the idea of separating weddings and sealings.  In fact, I don't agree with weddings.  I think they mock marriages.  But that's me.

 

I'm thinking I must be misunderstanding what you're saying here.

Are you saying that weddings mock marriage?

If so, I'm scratching my head.

Could it be that they possessed an understanding that we today lack? 

 

 Are you saying that the leaders of our church who have decided to remove they phrase “holiness to the lord” from ZCMI stores lack an understanding that earlier church leaders had?

Children are not brought into the sealing room until after their parents have finished their own sealing.

I have it on fairly good authority that the changes to the endowment will start on Jan 2.  (I haven't read through the thread so if this has already been mentioned, my apologies.)

If true that's interesting, that they would begin the changes before having any meetings with the ordinance workers to explain/train for the changes.

There is so much truth in this statement.

I used to listen to my grandmother talk about her first, and subsequent visits to the temple.  In her day, they dedicated nearly a full day to initiatory and endowment services.  I think it would be a tremendous blessing for us to have the opportunity to be in the temple for an extended period.

You can stay there all day if you like, doing different ordinances.  Or you could become a temple worker and do that weekly!  :)

For that matter you could spend as much time every single day if you wanted to.   I know of people who literally do that!!

I know one brother who's employment is temple security and he is also a temple worker who works multiple shifts every week and at least one shift every day as a temple worker besides his employment.  His whole life is in the temple in one facet or other.

I would ask you to think about it for a while.

IF it is true maybe the training will start on the 2nd?

Its been about a month or so since I have been to the temple but I don't remember it that way. What I believe is said is that women will obey the Law of the Lord and Hearken to their husbands and he hearkens to God. Something like that. But to me that puts the pressure on the husband that he better be doing what God has asked of him. I don't see it as a wife's blind obedience to husbands, though some people do take it that way. I could totally be wrong

This is one of the changes in the 1990 version.

I agree but their minds are already made up.  A man person convinced against their will is of the same opinion still.  ;)

  I also think that we only have a small portion of the endowment in any case--the Adam and Eve portion; I am looking forward to the Seth, Enoch, Noah (and onward) portions.

 

First time I went through I thought we would see all the dispensations represented, at about the hour point I was wondering how we'd get them all in.

hearken to her husband's counsel AS HE HEARKENS TO THE LORD'S

The part I capitalized makes a BIG difference in that statement, especially when seen in terms of the endowment.

It definitely could, it would just mean that there would be some workers who were already in the thick of things with the changes before they were trained on them.  But, depending on what the changes could be, that woudn't necessarily be a problem.  It seems like simple changes could easily be incorporated without any fanfare.

My mind is not made up.  I think I'm more open-minded than you think I am.

But, when the only response is "Think about it for a while", it's a very weak response.  Not sure why @Bernard Gui chose not to give a detailed response...

      With all the new Temples being announced and my excitement builds at attending the dedications of said Temples, can the experts on this forum and the Journal of Discourse experts comment as to a future Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Temple on Mount Horeb (Moses and the Burning Bush site)? Perhaps during the Millennium?

      The First Endowment was administered in the Upper Room of the Red Brick Store in Nauvoo. The room is not very big and Joseph said that he spent the day giving all the different "..washings, anointings, endowments and the communication of keys pertaining to the Aaronic Priesthood, and so on to the highest order of the Melchizedek Priesthood, setting forth the order pertaining to the Ancient of Days, and all those plans and principles by which any one is enabled to secure the fullness of those blessings.."
      My question was how they would have been able to arrange the room to match the temple layout? What else do you think Joseph included that Brigham Young eventually cut/rearranged in the Nauvoo temple and in later arrangements of the endowment?
      I can't find Josephs original plans for the layout of the Nauvoo floors. However from the ones I can find it doesn't seem to include the rooms that were built in later temples like St. George and Salt Lake. When the Nauvoo temple was finished they hung curtains to section off the different portions of the endowment but I feel like Joseph would have specific rooms built for that purpose? Or no?
      Just curious on your thoughts!!

      So in the Primary class I teach, my coteacher is incredible and brings video clips from a Jewish film library.
      Last Sunday we learned about Solomon's Temple, which imitated the Tabernacle Moses built, and Moses' Temple imitated/represented the actual, physical Garden of Eden with the Tree of eternal life being up on top of a hill and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil being lower than the hill, according to Jewish scholarship.
      Was the Garden of Eden a Temple? A representation of mortality, condensed?
      Hoping Robert Smith will weigh in on this.

      Was chatting at Scouts last night - RIP and good riddance BSA - with an expert on Russia.
      Asked him 'bout the announced Temple in Russia; he thinks St. Petersburg; I don't know as I dont' study that country much,,,
      He said it could be 10+ years away like when Kiev Temple was announced
      Curious as to if Church HQ's legal team advised President Nelson or Bishop Davies to not announce the Russia Temple until a location had been selected and approved.  
      Laughed at the response to the lawyers: Thank you for your advice.  This meeting is over.
      -
      Curious as to what steps are in place before a Temple is announced (site acquisition, govt permitting approval, etc.)?
      Also I'd like to attend the dedication but not sure who would sponsor my Visa as a US passport won't get you in Russia, especially not after their recent laws regarding foreigners proselytizing?
