Church Services This Week at Ridge Crest Ward Northridge Stake Layton Utah 22 December 2013

Elders Quorum
The lesson based on D Todd Christofferson’s October 2013 General Conference talk, The Moral Force of Women
Indentured servants were also called redemptioners.  They had to redeem a debt or purchase their freedom.

What is the value that the Savior redeems us for?  The worth of a soul.  The worth of one soul is eternal life.

The Church's website,, has the phrase right now "Christmas is..."

Jesus was born in the spring when we are thawing out from winter and things get warmer and arguably better from there.  We celebrate his birth just after the winter solstice.  Days start getting longer and we begin to come out from days with more darkness than light and things start to get lighter and arguably better.

Sunday School
Lesson 45 Doctrine and Covenants and Church History: The Family is Ordained of God
There are a lot of complicated social and political issues right now.  There are only complicated because they are worked on by society by removing God from the equations.  The problems don't make sense because we have taken data (God) that is necessary to solve the problem out.

Elder Oaks used the term homogenize to describe what the world is doing with gender today.

We tend to focus on what the world thinks and that The Family a Proclamation to the World is a statement against the ideas of the world.  Those ideas are seeping into the Church and many Church members have ideas that are not in accord with the proclamation.

Sacrament service
There was a small Christmas program
