100 Years of Seminary Celebration

President Boyd K Packer Mormon Apostle

President Boyd K. Packer, modern-day apostle of Jesus Christ (Mormon leader), spoke last evening at a special broadcast to youth, teens, Mormons and friends of other faiths at what was called the “Seminary Centennial Broadcast.”  Seminary is a high-school course of religious instruction for youth, equipping them to face their daily challenges and draw nearer to Jesus Christ.  Church youth, Mormon/LDS leaders, parents and the leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints–the First Presidency–attended and addressed the gathering. Over 350,000 youth are participating globally in a scripture study course with their peers during their high school years.  It produces a youth fortified by the word rather than the world, and enables them to understand the divine doctrines of Christ’s gospel and atoning sacrifice and to apply them personally.  President Eyring addressed the youth, sharing the history and growth of this marvelous inspired program, and Elder Packer addressed issues of morality and the standards of truth around relationships, gay lifestyles, and facing the future.

Parents of all faiths and youth, teens, young adults, are invited to view the archived Mormon Seminary Broadcast/Devotional on Educating Youth in Truth and Righteousness here.

The Centennial program will additionally be rebroadcast on January 29 at 6 pm MST and it is already available online in ASL, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish and in stake (LDS/Mormon meetinghouse) centers around the world.

Call for Stories for Christ.org, MGF Site

Jesus Christ MormonDear Friends of the More Good Foundation,

We’re creating a new section on Christ.org–one of our More Good Foundation websites–that will include a composite of personal stories regarding the ways in which the Savior has intervened in our daily lives, and helped us to overcome, realize His hand, submit to His will, live on, receive understanding, see purpose, or find joy in the journey. (Possible topics and questions are listed below.)

We’d like to extend an invitation to you to write and submit to us, your own account of any way in which you have felt the personal impact of the Savior’s atoning love, grace, and influence in your life as you’ve moved forward in your journey of life, or as you’ve faced a particular life challenge. It doesn’t matter if the story revolves around a small moment, one event, or a long struggle. Selected accounts will be published on the site.

If you’re interested, please email your name, photo, and story to Karen Merkley, km@moregood.com. Stories should be approximately 350-1200 words. While we can post some stories anonymously, we’d also like to receive those from guests who would like to include a photo and first name, with their post, to keep the site inviting, real, and personal for our visitors.
