The First Vision

Next week (6th Feb) we will be discussing Joseph Smith's First Vision. Watch the video and comment questions and thoughts that arise here.

A young missionary was explaining to a contact that our Church is led by a prophet of the Lord who receives revelation for the Church and for the world. The man was very interested and asked the elder what the prophet had said. The missionary, however, could not think of anything specific to tell the man.

“Well, what is the most recent thing your prophet has proclaimed?” the man asked. Still the missionary stammered and could not answer; he just did not know.

Before you watch the video, post below what you would say if you were the missionary. Then watch the video, listen to President Monson's words and see what you can add to what you would say to this question.

Secondly, use lds.org to find a recent talk or article by President Monson. Find the key messages in what he says and be prepared to report back on Sunday what you have learned.

Next Week (23rd Jan) The title of the lesson will be You are Called to Build Zion. We will be looking at Ammon's example so please read Alma Chapters 17-19 to remind yourself of the story. You might want to spread it out over a few days as these chapters are quite long to read all in one go. As you read consider this question and comment below: What did Ammon do that made King Lamoni willing to listen to him?
