Welcome! This is our third episode of the fireside discussions on the temple, facilitated by Goolge+ Hangouts on Air. We’re glad you could join us. Tonight’s discussion is about the first chapter in Andrew Skinner’s book Temple Worship. You can watch the recording below. Or view the machine transcription here. You can also download an MP3 audio version here.
In this discussion we talk about the temple as being the “ultimate” of our worship, what it means to “serve” in the temple, where temples or temple worship can take place on the earth, the first endowments given in the Nauvoo Temple attic, temple “work” vs. temple “worship,” the fact that the Nauvoo temple was only in use for 2 months (8 weeks) before it was destroyed which makes us reflect on the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in ancient times, what it means to have a “fullness of the Holy Ghost” which we can attain to in the temple, and the profound importance of the temple in the lives of Latter-day Saints and in our worship in the Church.
Panelists include Bryce Haymond, Gary Anderson, Gerald Smith, and William Hamblin.
