186th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

We went to the chapel tonight to watch the broadcast. It is my middle child/youngest son’s first time at conference. There was a bit of a social beforehand where we could have subs and chips. Afterwards we went to Boston Pizza for more food. It’s a great tradition! President Henry B Eyring conducted A choir […]

Pamphlets and leaflets from around Palmyra

Note: This should be my last Palmyra relate post for a while. As mentioned before, my family went to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant in Palmyra, New York back in the middle of July. I have previously posted about the protestors as well as some pictures of the sites we visited. I’ve also scanned five […]

Photos from Palmyra New York historical sites and pageant

As I’ve mentioned this week, back in July we went to see the Hill Cumorah Pageant. Here are some pictures. I took a lot more than this, but have selected a variety. We are hoping to go back in the Fall when things aren’t so busy and we can have the regular tours.

Hill Cumorah Draws Business and Protests To Streets of Palmyra

I’m a little late on posting this, but I still wanted to post it. A few weeks ago we went to see the annual Palmyra Pageant. It is always a fun day, and is pretty much the only time where I get to see any protestors against the Church. This article from YNN in Rochester […]

I live for what happens today

A few years ago Eugene (Gene) Cernan was in Buffalo, NY for a presentation. For those who don’t know, he was the spacecraft commander of Apollo 17 1972 from December 6 to December 19 and was the last man to walk on the moon. I was listening to the local NPR station and the host […]

A little more about Elder Larry Echo Hawk

Over the two days of Stake Conference, I had the opportunity to speak to Elder Larry Echo Hawk several times. I was immediately impressed by his humility. If you read about what he has accomplished in his life, he is remarkably humble. He went to law school, was the Attorney General for Idaho, taught at the BYU law school, […]

Mormons: Unlikely hi-tech PR wizards

I live just outside of Niagara Falls, Ontario. I was previously the bishop of a ward that had attendance of just under 150. We have an Apostle come to Stake Conference about once every 8-10 years. It’s not to say that we are forgotten, but we certainly aren’t a focus of attention by the Church […]

183rd Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

After the morning session of General Conference I watched The World Report (I like their new logo and theme). I then had a nap for about an hour. I awoke to some of the Bible videos being played. I haven`t seen them before, and they looked pretty good. Well, here we go with the final session… President […]

Mormon Church buys ads in Book of Mormon programme

I’m sure this has been done in many cities where the “Book of Mormon” musical is being presented, but this one is very close to home (I live about an hour away from Toronto). From the Toronto Star: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hopes patrons who see the runaway hit stage musical […]

Talk repeats by General Authorities

If you are lucky enough to go to enough meetings, chances are you’ve heard the same story told numerous times by a General Authority. This came to mind the other day when in the Institute class I teach we were talking about Elder Jeffrey R. Holland powerful talk (The First Great Commandment) from the Sunday […]
