Temples in Germany, Utah, and the Congo

Temples in Germany, Utah, and the Congo October 20, 2019

 

The Frankfurt Temple
The Frankfurt Germany Temple (LDS Media Library)
It actually sits in the village of Friedrichsdorf, founded as a refuge for French Huguenots twelve miles north of the Frankfurt city center.

 

“Latter-day Saint Apostle Rededicates Frankfurt Germany Temple: Four-year renovation is complete”

 

There are some nice photographs of the temple (including its interior) at the link above, and a video that includes at least a few seconds of Elder and Sister Uchtdorf speaking in German.  (I liked that.)  There are also some good photographs, exterior and interior, here:

More photographs from the rededication are available on the Church website for Germany:

Another temple for Utah County

There will, fairly soon, be more temples in Utah County than there were in the entire state of Utah when I first came to Brigham Young University as a student:

 

“Ground Broken for Utah’s 18th Temple: Saratoga Springs temple is the fifth in Utah County”

Congo Temple

I think that I posted links to two or three of these, but perhaps not to all.  So, just to be sure, here they are:

 

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 1: Preparing for the Kinshasa Temple Open House 18 March 2019”

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 2: Media Session of the Kinshasa Temple Open House March 11, 2019”

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 3: Happy Easter from the DR Congo!”

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 4: Vignettes of Joy and Gratitude from the Kinshasa Temple Open House”

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 5: A Tale of Two Sealings”

“The Kinshasa DR Congo Temple: A Personal Perspective: Part 6: What We Learned From Watching Harold Swerg”

Now, though, for some items that aren’t related to Latter-day Saint temples:

 

First, here’s an interesting piece from the thoughtful Ben Spackman:

 

“Old Manuals, Unintended Consequences, and the Optimistic Turn of “Come Follow Me””

 

And here are a couple of pieces from Jeff Lindsay:

 

“Puzzling Statement from Joseph Smith III May Raise a Book of Abraham Question: Could More of the Original Papyri Have Survived?”

 

“Feeling Blue About the Red Sea in the Book of Mormon?”

 

And, finally, here’s a little commercial out of Alaska that happens to focus on something that I’m not sure I’ve ever encountered before: a shared Catholic/Latter-day Saint chapel:

 

“JELD-WEN Case Study: Our Lady of the Snows Chapel, Girdwood, Alaska”

 

Unfortunately — my apologies! — I can’t recall who brought it to my attention.
