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 Good Word is the favorite scripture of Brother Michael R. McGuire from the Dedham, Massachusetts Mission. He says:
I found myself many times over and over thanking God for my parents, who raised me under the sound of the Gospel in The Church of Jesus Christ, teaching me of God, the Scriptures in both the Bible and the Book of Mormon, prayer, and bringing me to Church. You know that I enjoyed it and looked forward to learning about the Restoration and going to Church. So therefore I can proudly say as Nephi did, "Having been born of goodly parents."
Thanks for sharing, Brother Michael!

Today's reading: John 8:1-11
"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." – John 8:7
This week's Bible passage depicts one of the many times when the scribes and Pharisees tried to discredit Jesus, but the outcome paints a beautiful portrait of God's grace and mercy.
One morning, as Jesus was teaching in the temple, the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman who was caught in adultery, a sin punishable by death under the Law of Moses. The scribes and Pharisees weren't trying to hold this woman accountable to the law as much as they were trying to trap Jesus in His teachings.
