The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Today's article is another installment in Brother P.'s column, "Lessons From the Nursing Home."
In the branch of The Church of Jesus Christ where I belong, we have a brother who calls his walking cane “Pride.” I am not exactly sure of his reasoning.
Maybe his pride is lost because he uses the cane now? Maybe it keeps him from using the walker, which could be a source of pride? Maybe “pride goeth before a fall.” (I guess I should have asked him.)
If winter weather is getting you down, today's experience from Sister Marie McGuire will take you back to summertime.
During the summer of 1963, I was downstairs doing laundry, and my son Mickey began to question me about something that was on his mind. He said, "Mom, in Church we are taught that God created the heavens and all living things on earth. Then He created man in His own image. In school, we are taught about a big bang creation theory. We are taught the theory of evolution of man from the apes. How do I know which creation story is true? If I put God's creation on the test in school, then I get it wrong. I just want to know what is the real truth.”
