Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah 22 Sep 2013

Elders QuorumThe lesson was based on Elder Jeffrey R Holland’s April 2013 General Conference talk, “Lord I Believe”.
Mark 9:22–24
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things
are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
" not start your quest for faith by saying how much you do not have..." - Elder Holland
Sunday SchoolLesson 36 - Our Heritage chapter 7
The Lord wanted the pioneer saints to create a united people.  How often are religions just congregations of people coming to listen to a preacher?
How often are we in an unfamiliar situation and someone says, "You're a Mormon?  Jim over here is a Mormon." and we are excited to meet Jim and have an automatic kinship with Jim?  We have someone with someone with something in common stronger than if you both play golf.
Today we contribute to temple by tithing our money.  In the early days of the Church the people tithed their time and put physical labor into building the temple.
Brigham Young sent people to settle different communities once they got settled in Salt Lake City.  He also established stakes and the retrenchment organization for young women.
