Homeless Church in Salt Lake - LDS

Post by mom3 » 05 Feb 2017, 11:42

It's a tad long but it's a flicker of light I would love to see some measure of through out all the world, LDS or not.

"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

Thanks for sharing, Mom. This brightened my day. I echo Bishop Causse (who I am not surprised was involved):
"Today we are in this humble chapel, and it has the same meaning to the Savior as any of those big, big meetinghouses we see all over Utah," he says. "Sometimes I wish we had only these kinds of facilities because we would turn to God even better."
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

I love this - and the quote from Bp. Causse is awesome. Love that man.
I see through my glass, darkly - as I play my saxophone in harmony with the other instruments in God's orchestra. (h/t Elder Joseph Wirthlin)

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

One of the most moving services I ever attended was a Methodist service in the woods behind a campground; the hillside was a natural amphitheater, and the only furniture other than some logs to sit on was a small folding camp table for the altar candles. Really puts things in perspective when you worship using only what He has provided directly.
