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!
Mosiah 4-6 – After King Benjamin concludes his sermon, the people are left to choose whether or not to apply his counsel. Great parallels there to our day, eh? These chapters focus on how the people of Zarahemla experienced a “mighty change” in their hearts and how we can do the same. Mackenna Gallacher is with us.
How do we have our will swallowed up by that of the Father? Christ is a perfect example of obedience. The bar is surely high, but we are promised great blessings as we strive to forget ourselves and submit to the Lord. We need the Atonement and shouldn’t dare attempt to live without it.
2 Kings 2-6 – Elijah prepares Elisha to be the new prophet. Elisha takes Elijah’s mantle as the latter is translated. Elisha mocks Jehoram. Elisha has a run-in with locals. Bears ensue. Naaman is healed through obedience. What do we learn from these stories? Dustin Homer is back!
Numbers 22; 31 – Balak, king of Moab, needs to defeat Israel, but how? He elects to persuade Balaam, a prophet, to turn God on Israel. Yup. Balaam is tempted by the riches offered and clearly wants to have his cake and eat it too. God is angry with Balaam over his waffling and counsel to Balak. Also, Balaam’s donkey talks. Talking Donkeys! Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS joins us.
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.
