Joseph Smith and a childNot a real photograph, but authentic to the man
Perhaps you’re sitting in a heavily-Mormon neighborhood in Utah. Perhaps there’s some other reason, but you just don’t have any good ideas for furthering the missionary calling of the Church.
Here’s a way that you might be able to help:
“We hope members will make the movie part of their personal and family worship….”
This bit bothers me a tad. What’s your take on it, Dr. Peterson?
Dan of course can speak for himself, but I guess it comes down to what we expect people to do if they take that on board:
1) Worship the movie?
2) Worship Joseph Smith through the movie? or
3) Increase our thankfulness to God for the Restoration of the Gospel in these latter days.
I don’t expect too many votes for 1 or 2.
Possibly a poor choice of words. But I know no Latter-day Saints who worship Joseph Smith, nor any that seem seriously tempted to do so.
