In this year’s last lesson, Al and Geoff elaborate on the concept of Zion. What is Zion? Where did Zion come from? How can we be Zion? These questions and more will be answered!
D&C 136—Steve Pierce joins us for a discussion on the Saints’ journey to the Salt Lake Valley. How did the Lord guide Mormons during this period? What lessons were learned?
D&C 101; 103; 105—Let’s learn more about the early saints’ efforts to establish Zion in Missouri, including the many trials and refining experience they went through, such as Zion’s Camp. And who better to walk us through this stuff than our resident Missourian, Al Doan?
This lesson is somewhat of an outlier in that while the Doctrine and Covenants certainly deals with the plan of salvation, this lesson goes into many other scriptures to talk about God’s plan for us, which is fitting since the plan is not restricted to what was revealed to Joseph Smith. Patricia Auxier joins us to talk about how knowing the doctrines of Heavenly Father’s plan is crucial to the growth of our faith and testimony.
Settling the Mountain West – The Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build. What lessons do we learn from the difficulty faced in its construction? Why is a foundation so important that it was built twice? How can we turn our hearts toward the temple? Why were saints sent to colonize areas instead of grouping together? We also discuss missionary work. Dustin Homer is with us.
