Old Ship Zion

It has always been difficult for the World to accept living prophets and apostles.

Too many people think that Church members should be perfect or nearly perfect.  We need to remember that the Lord will accomplish his goals through imperfect humans.

We need to see the ability that exists in other people.  See them how the Lord sees them, and the eternal capabilities that person has.  (Deacons, local Church leaders, etc.).

“What will you become through the atonement of Jesus Christ.”

Reaffirmed the warning from The Family: A Proclamation to the World, and said that the Lord’s apostles are duty-bound to proclaim the warning therein:

…we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.

Fast and Testimony review…

  1. Testimonies should be statements of belief
  2. Testimonies should *not* be stories
  3. Children should practice testimonies with family and primary until they understand importance of bearing testimony

Be grateful for the “Old Ship Zion” – without it we’re cast along without rudder, and blown about.
