NEW photo of my week and a short Sunday sermon

Happy Sunday!  My hubby and I went to Temple Square a few days ago and enjoyed all the {so beautiful!!!} flower gardens, had a Lion House roll with honey butter (YUM!) and stayed for a college choir concert.  On our way out, the sun was just directly behind the temple, so I shot this silhouette.  I kind of love how it turned out. :o)

So, I thought today’s Sunday sermon should relate to temples.  Right?!?

I’ve come to realize that there are A LOT of misconceptions about what Mormons do in temples.  If you’ve ever wondered, you can read THIS.  Others have heard of our ‘Baptisms for the Dead’ and believe we exhume bodies for some weird ceremony in our temples.  Uh NO….NOT even close!  I suppose we should really change our wording so it’s more clear to those who don’t understand.  It’s actually ‘Baptism by Proxy’ and it is mentioned in the Bible, so I don’t see why many people, (even other Christians) find it so different.  The New Testament indicates that baptisms for the dead were done during the time of the Apostle Paul (see 1 Corinthians 15:29).   You can read more about temple worship HERE.

Have a terrific day today!  Do or learn something NEW!
