  1. We attended the "9 am session" of our Ward Sacrament meeting today as well. The Chapel had been cleaned prior to the service. There were almost 90 in attendance, so very close to the maximum of 99. Every other row was closed to maintain physical distance. Masks were required except for children under the age of two. Family groups sat together with distance between each group in a row -- at least that's what it looked like to me. All were asked to sanitize their hands prior to entering the chapel. The Sacrament was passed directly to us -- people sitting in the congregation did
  2. My heavens! He’s really quite good at it, isn’t he?! I love his advice: Enjoy your life!
  3. From her bio on Wiki: “Henderson was born and baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Though she never renounced her membership, after her marriage, she was no longer a churchgoing Latter-day Saint.[8] In the standard reference Contemporary Authors, she identified as Methodist,[12] and according to Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature, Volume 2, she was a member of Catalina United Methodist Church in Tucson.[13] During her later years, she attended an independent charismatic fellowship.[“
  4. Some of you might enjoy this. I believe 1700 GMT = 11 am MDT.

Martinich’s major observations: 1. 2019 was the first year since 2012 in which the rate of membership growth has accelerated instead of decelerated. 2. 2019 is the first year since 2014 that the annual number of convert baptisms has increased by a sizable amount compared to the prior year. 3. The discrepancy between the summation of increase in children of record and convert baptisms and the actual annual increase in Church membership significantly decreased in 2019 in comparison to 2018. 4. The Church in 2019 reported its lowest number of children added to Church recor

  8. For those who take an interest in Church membership statistics, you might enjoy Matt Martinich’s analysis of the 2019 statistical report over at the Cumorah Project. He notes several quite positive developments in 2019.
  9. It was wonderful. Neither my wife nor I could withhold tears during Elder Johnson’s heartfelt benediction.
  10. Ah. That could be — especially if you’re trying sing Mack Wilberg’s arrangement.
  11. “Come Thou Fount of every Blessing”
  12. How can this hymn not be in the hymn book?! (Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”)
  13. I did. I appreciated how it stirred within me a memory of my own spiritual experiences. Everyday life and mundane worries and struggles have a tendency to put me into a state of forgetfulness — and ingratitude. It is good to be reminded how good, how kind the Lord has been to me.
  14. “It is Well with my Soul!” A fitting and beautiful hymn for today.
