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.
We hope today's Good Word brings a little light to your day. One of God's first acts of creation was to separate light from darkness, and in the Garden of Eden He established laws that separated good from evil. The Good Lord continues to show us how to separate good from evil today — even as the world insists on seeing more and more gray.
You just never know what gospel jewel you're going to take away from an MBA meeting. A month or so ago, I walked away from a midweek service with this gem. It's an experience by Brother Al DeCaro from the San Diego California Branch, which was recorded at October conference in 1972.
It seemed as though I was in our San Diego Branch and all the brothers and sisters were standing in a single file, one behind the other in the middle aisle and Brother Tom Liberto, who is our presiding elder, was standing in front of the sacrament table. Along the back wall of the rostrum were five or six metal containers measuring in size about 3 or 4 feet square.
