Previous Church Video, Why Mormons Build Temples

In keeping with a Christmas tradition, I again post The Wall Street Journal’s venerable Christmas Eve Editorial, written by the late Vermont Royster.  And, as we leave behind an era of greater oppression, in our own day, may we rejoice in the hope of a brighter future of greater freedom and light for all people made possible by the Birth of the literal Son of God: (more…)

I had an opportunity to visit Temple Square over the Thanksgiving weekend and took a couple of shots, which don’t really do The Square justice this time of year–but here’s a sample: (more…)
