If you don't know much about Mormon beliefs, why don't you take a moment to watch this 2-minute video, featuring a message about hope, by a member of the presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, President Dieter F. Uchtdorf....
Please uphold the following guidelines while participating in this chat:
1. This chat should be positive and uplifting, gentle and kind, so as to invite The Spirit of The Lord. We are all trying to emmulate the life of Christ and let's demonstrate that here today.
2. Please refrain from criticizing others beliefs, religions or religious leaders. This can cause contention and ..."fools lips enter into contention." Proverbs 18:6.
3. Name-calling, sarasm, insulting, and slander have no place here and will cause the offending participant to be banned from the discussion.
4. If a comment takes away from the spirit of the meeting, I, as the blog author, reserve the right to delete it.
The following is one of my favorite artistic depictions of Christ's suffering in The Garden of Gethsemane by J. Kirk Richards...
Luke 22:40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into atemptation.
41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Again, thank you for being here and I look forward to opening doors of understanding one with another. :)
