U.S. Religious Landscape Survey

It seems that the buzz in the Bloggernacle is about the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey from the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. I don’t really anything to add to the discussion which has already taken place, but here are a few links: Mormons and the Pew U.S. Religious Landscape Survey – Times & […]

“We don’t have to find them. They are already there”

There is an “In Memoriam: President Gordon B. Hinckley 1910–2008” booklet that we will be getting with the Ensign that has been put up on the Church web site. If you visit the Funeral Services for President Gordon B. Hinckley page, you can download the PDF. Out of all of the wonderful things that were […]

JesusChrist.LDS.org

Yesterday I posted about a bunch of official Church web sites. I then read a blog posting from ldsWebguy about a new section of the Church web site at JesusChrist.LDS.org: Using the words of latter-day prophets and apostles as its foundation, the site focuses solely on the life, teachings, and mission of the Savior and […]

Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

The Church is doing a remarkable job at getting things online. The online missionary recommendation forms are a great example of this. Young men and women are already computer savvy and can go online and fill out the form. Then the Bishop and Stake President enter some other information and it’s done. Within a few […]

A Lead on the Ark of the Covenant

Time magazine has a great article on their web site that talks about “Tudor Parfitt, a real life scholar-adventurer” who think he knows where the Ark of the Covenant is, or at least “the last thing on earth in direct descent from the Ark of Moses” (you’ll have to read the article to understand what […]

The series was called God’s Eye View and has 4 pictures that are essentially images from Google Maps but that are of biblical events. For example, here is the crucifixion: There are also pictures of the flood, parting the Red […]

‘Knowledge of religion shallow, commitment deep’ in U.S.

The National Post had an interesting article last Saturday called ‘Knowledge of religion shallow, commitment deep’ in U.S. I guess it isn’t too surprising that in today’s world people are less-focused on organized religion, but still trying to be “committed”. However, I still found some of his findings surprising: Only half of American adults can […]

2008 Worldwide Leadership Training Meeting: Building Up a Righteous Posterity

On February 9 the Church held its annual Worldwide Leadership Training Meeting. Normally these are for a specific subset of members, usually ward and stake leaders. This time it was for all adults in the Church (18 and up). The topic was Building a Righteous Posterity. I was working that day, but left for a […]

Anglican Bishop of Durham Advocates An Understanding Of The Afterlife That is Very Mormon

The blog Sixteen Small Stones has a link to a Time magazine article about the Anglican Bishop of Durham. In a fascinating interview with Time Magazine , the Anglican Bishop of Durham, N.T. “Tom” Wright, who is the fourth most senior cleric in the Church of England, says that most Christians misunderstand the Biblical teaching […]

Mormons Confront Negative Ideas About Their Faith

On Tuesday, Morning Edition from NPR had a 5-minute segment on the Church. The campaign of Mitt Romney brought a lot of attention to the Church. Unfortunately, we’ve found out that there are still a lot of misconceptions out there, as well as a lot of people who just don’t want to hear the truth […]
