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 a reminder that earthly things don't last; only spiritual things are for eternity. So, as we each move forward into 2017 with many hopes and worries ahead, let's fix our sight on what matters most.
Growing up listening to the wise testimonies of my elder brothers and sisters, one that rings true and has always stayed with me is that of the late Sister Pauline Kowalczyk. Sister Pauline immigrated to the U.S. from Poland. Barely 5 feet tall, she frequently wore a long coat and was known for her fashionable hats. Most importantly, she gave a powerful testimony, greater than her stature.
Sister Pauline cherished her right to vote. After election cycles, she would boldly say in broken English, “Pray for the president!” I can hear her voice as I quote the words.
