182nd Annual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

It is amazing that another 6 months has gone by, and another General Conference is upon us. In a way, not much has changed since last conference… the economy still isn’t great; the Church has been in the news lots; there have been no “scandals” that have rocked the church. I guess it is “steady […]

Sacrament Hymn 169 – As Now We Take the Sacrament

I’ve commented before how I love music. I like most of the hymns that we sing in the Church, but there are definitely some that I like more than others. My favourite Sacrament hymn is #169. “As Now We Take the Sacrament” has beautiful music and words to match: With devotion 1. As now we […]

The song of the righteous…

First of all, let me say that I am not a musician, and not a singer. I took piano lessons when I was a kid, and can read basic music. I have an ok voice, but probably only because I sing a lot, not because I’m in any choirs (which I’m not). I love to […]

General Conference sub-domain, and another YouTube channel

Thanks to LDS Media Talk, I found out there is a General Conference sub-domain. I also found what appears to be an official Mormon Tabernacle Choir YouTube channel. I’ve added this to my Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints page. There are now 68 official church sites and sub-domains […]

The Apostle Song – revised with Elder Andersen

It was almost a year ago that I posted about The Apostle Song. This is apparently a little tune by The Sons of Ammon and is supposed to help you remember our 15 Prophets, Seers, and Revelators. Here is the latest version with a line about Elder Andersen.

179th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning Session

I ended up going to the Church this morning sans family for the first session. Two of our three kids are sick, and so my wife stayed home with them. I left a little early as I had an interview before. I also had an interview afterward. It was nice being able to refer to […]

FHE – Draw That Hymn

My wife led the Family Home Evening lesson last night and we talked about Church music. She asked us all to draw a picture of our favourite hymn or Primary song and we would all try to guess it. The one who guessed it right got to sing the song. Here are our drawings. See […]

The Apostle Song

Someone sent me a link to a YouTube video for something called “The Apostle Song”. It is a little song that helps you remember our current 15 apostles (including the First Presidency). The tune sounds like the theme song from The Beverly Hillbillies (or so my wife says). Strangely enough, that very day I also […]

President Hinckley’s Poem

I think this is the last posting I’ll have about Gordon B. Hinckley’s passing and the event surrounding it… At the funeral, there were two hymns sung that were written by President Hinckley. Most people are aware that the lyrics for hymn # 135, My Redeemer Lives, were written by President Hinckley and the music […]
