Yes - but you can't go through the veil on behalf of an individual if you lose the paper in the endowment room. As the last female to go through, you get to be escorted by the temple worker (who also can't find the paper) around the veil experience into the Celestial Room (if you choose to).
I would not be surprised if that was my entrance into heaven. The only thing topping that is having your dress on backwards. Who knew they could be?
Secondly - thanks for popping up so many good threads. Really enjoying them again. Keep it up.

"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

One of the reasons I love small temples is that you can't lose something in the endowment room. In our temple, the Temple Preaidency will help search for it.
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.

I forgot to mention that it was one of the small temples this real life experience actually occurred in. I guess I am that gifted at losing things

"Legally and lawfully" is a tautology.

1ST PRES 1978 "[LDS] believe...there is truth in many religions and philosophies...good and great religious leaders... have raised the spiritual, moral, and ethical awareness of their people. When we speak of The [LDS] as the only true church...it is...authorized to administer the ordinances...by Jesus Christ... we do not mean... it is the only teacher of truth."
