One of the huge blessings of holiday weekends– no matter how much I may say about “flatlanders”–is the influx of people up here camping, using their cabins, and staying with friends or relatives, who plan to attend church services with our little congregation. Three young gentlemen even brought their Sunday suits so they could respectfully participate in passing the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper to the congregants. I don’t know if they had a cabin or were camping, but that really shows a level of respect for holy things not often seen in the young.
Part of my Sunday service is spent with the children in Primary. For two hours they are taught eternal truths through song, story, and lessons.
We have a yearly theme. This year it’s Choose the Right. Today we had fifty-two children visiting our Primary. They were extraordinarily good, so the concepts they’ve been taught in their home churches have sunk deeply into their hearts. (Mormons use the same lesson materials world-wide.) They also have good parents.
We had a great time with our 52 visitors. Oddly enough, none of our member children attended today. They were visiting another ward or branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
