    Doctrine and Covenants 10:52

    The Book of Mormon has a sealed 2/3 portion. That portion has the fullness. We are also missing the book of Lehi.

    All foreign missionaries coming home?

    All foreign missionaries coming home?

    My son should arrive home tonight. His release date is October 2020. All missionaries with release dates before October are to be formally released. Our stake president is recommending wait and see at this point. From what I gather all USA missionaries in Cambodia will be transferring home within the week. The mission president’s wife has already gone back to the states but the Mission President is planning to stay for the duration.

    My son has been in lock down for 3 1/2 weeks in Cambodia. With weekly updates to hold tight.

  7. Jesus ins’t magical. He is knowledgeable. He went among the Lepers because He is full of Charity. And to teach us and give us an example. But He had no fear of any man or disease. He created the Earth
  8. Since Jesus can cure any disease / resurrect anyone. I doubt than and bacteria or virus would frighten him.

    Sacrament at home prep

    We had a wonderful meeting. Our living room has never been so clean. We invited another family to share the sacrament with us as their priesthood leader was out of town. I gave an impromptu talk. Altars in our home.

    Sacrament at home prep

    As the OP I wrote this as a realization that the Sacrament ritual is probably not well understood or appreciated by the general membership. Is it the ritual that is important? Or is the understanding of what the sacrament represents and a broken heart and contrite spirit. The first presidency cannot give us a broken heart and contrite spirit via an official recommendation during this Coronavirus crisis. Perhaps they have given Stake Presidencies the authority to make local decisions according to the needs of their members.

    Sacrament at home prep

    One might ask if the napkin / sheet / tablecloth is important. Is it part of the emblematic ritual. Does it represent the veil between us and the Lord? Is this significant? John 20:7 What should we be remembering? Is it ritual which is important or our understanding and mindset?
  12. Our stake gave permission to priesthood holders to prepare and bless the sacrament for their families. We were instructed to review the General Handbook section 18.9 There are some details in the preparation that we do at church that we may not think are important at home, but they probably are. 1) Wash hands with soap 2) preparation prior to the meeting with trays of unbroken bread, clean cups of water, and white clean pressed tablecloths 3) Singing while the tablecloths are removed so that the bread can be broken 4) Kneeling to say the bread prayer 6) Presiding leader partakes first 7) Partake with Right hand if possible 8 ) Cloth now covers the bread trays and the water is revealed 9) Kneel to say the water prayer 11) Cover both the bread tray and the water cups with the tablecloths Have we considered the meaning in the presentation? Is it important? Leviticus 1: 10-13 Leviticus 3:6-11 Leviticus 2: 4-10

    Mosiah 4:7

    Adam can and does have multiple meanings. He is the first man born into a world. 1 Cor 15:45 Is it possible that some of the members of our pre-mortal existence went to another ‘Earth’ with it’s own Adam? Yup. I do think that everyone that falls under the umbrella of Jesus Christ’s atonement had the opportunity to sustain him during the pre-mortal existence.
