Another official web site – Official Communication Library

Probably the most popular posting I’ve done is a long list of official web sites of the Church (I’ll probably revise it soon). I recently learned about another site… the Official Communication Library. This is a repository of memos and other communications from Church Headquarters. Apparently only Stake Presidents have access to it, but I […]

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 […]

He was buried Saturday in Salt Lake City. The church broadcast his memorial service around the world in 69 languages. President […]

Yesterday he posted that according to BlogPulse, Gordon B. Hinckley was the 3rd most referenced person in the blogosphere on Monday. As you can see from the screenshot, almost all of the […]
