1135

LDS.net’s Mormon Minute recaps LDS news that’s happening in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This week, we talk about: the dedication of the priesthood restoration site, the Church’s video for kids on what to do if they come across pornography, and President Uchtdorf’s wardrobe malfunction.

0:06 – Priesthood Site Dedication

President Nelson dedicated the historic priesthood restoration site during a dedicatory ceremony held in Oakland Township, Pennsylvania. Joseph Smith received the priesthood at this site, and translated much of The Book of Mormon there. The renovations include a video at the visitors center that introduces the new area and better access to the Susquehanna river where the baptisms of Smith and Oliver Cowdery took place. President Nelson said,

How thankful we are for these historical events and for the supernal significance of revelation, scriptures, restoration of priesthood authority, and baptism, all of which unfolded here in this relatively remote, but very sacred and serene location.

0:54 – Avoiding Pornography for Kids

The Church has a new video out for children about what to do if they see pornography. The five minute video is part of a series of family home evening lessons on overcomingpornography.com. The short film is narrated by children and explains the dangers of pornography and what to do in simple steps.

1:12 – Uchtdorf’s Wardrobe Malfunction

And President Uchtdorf’s address at the inauguration of BYU-Idaho’s new president caught the attention of many when his wife Harriet walked up during his speech to make sure he was looking his very best.
