October 19, 2009 FHE

A little Pre-FHE Perfection:
Opening Prayer: Carson

Theme: Revelation

Thought: Chad - "These are the days when prophecies are being fulfilled. We live in the dispensation of the fulness of times...We need to be acquainted with the promptings of the Holy Ghost...These promptings become the foundation of our testimonies. (Allan F. Packer. "Finding Strength in Challenging Times!". Ensign, May 2009, 17-19)

Song: "The Ninth Article of Faith," - I tried to sing it, but ended up just reading it!

Scripture: Carson - "God shall give unto you knowledge by his Holy Spirit, yea, by the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost, that has not been revealed since the world was until now. (Doctrine & Covenants 121:26)

Stories: Mom & Dad - Two stories about modern revelation; Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon receiving what would become section 76 of the Doctrine & Covenants. Mary Elizabeth and Caroline Phelps grabbing pages from the Book of Covenants as the printing press was being burned down. We reviewed a handwritten page from The Joseph Smith Papers: Revelations and Translations. This page was titled "The Vision" and was Joseph Smith's handwritten account of a revelation he received while in the temple and studying John 5. This handwritten account would become D&C 76. We then read D&C 76:6-10 and listed 12 things that the Lord promises to those who serve him in truth and righteousness. We then made a "Count Your Blessings" Jar that we could all write on slips of paper and put in our jar, which we will empty and read occasionally. Closing Prayer: Chad

FHE ended with our usual...McDonalds for ICE CREAM!
