First, here are a couple of new items on the website of the Interpreter Foundation:

 

Christ as the Mediator of the New Testament (Hebrews 9): A Video Supplement for Come, Follow Me Lesson 44: “An High Priest of Good Things to Come”

 

Faith without Works in James 2: A Video Supplement for Come, Follow Me Lesson 45: “Be Ye Doers of the Word, and Not Hearers Only”

 

And there’s this, as well, which you may or may not have seen already:

 

Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man “Science and Mormonism”

Part of our book chapter reprint series, this article by Henry Eyring originally appeared in Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man (2016).

Abstract: Famed chemist Henry Eyring, father of apostle Henry B. Eyring, provides an entertaining and highly readable discussion on evolution, the search for truth, literal and figurative interpretations of scripture, the case for religions belief, and the certainty of his testimony of the gospel.

Next, here is some news from Southeast Asia:

 

“President and Sister Nelson, Elder and Sister Christofferson embark on Southeast ministry”

 

“Government leader presents official certificate authorizing members to conduct religious activities in Vietnam”

 

“Why President Nelson traveled 7,526 miles to address hundreds of Vietnamese Latter-day Saints”

 

“In His First Visit to Cambodia, Prophet Unveils Phnom Penh Temple Rendering: President Nelson continues his ministry in Southeast Asia”

 

***

 

Meanwhile, President Nelson’s first counselor has been back in the eastern United States with a member of the Council of the Twelve Apostles:

 

“President Eyring, Elder Stevenson deliver family history to Maryland governor at historic State House”

 

“President Eyring talks about the real purpose of ministering and more changes in the Church”

 

***

 

And another member of the Council of the Twelve has been down in the American South:

 

“Apostle Rededicates the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple”

You really, really need to add this item to your Christopher Hitchens Memorial “How Religion Poisons Everything” File.  But then, perhaps even more urgently, you need to share your file with the mayor of Houston, Texas.  Because he seems not to realize how toxic religion and religious believers are:

 

“Why the Houston City mayor specifically asked Latter-day Saint missionaries to help with a service event”

 

And, while we’re on the subject, here’s yet another item that’s screaming out to be included in your Christopher Hitchens Memorial “How Religion Poisons Everything” File and to be shared with Mayor Turner.  It’s about the horrible man who founded that horrible company Chick-fil-A:

 

“‘You take this house, and I’ll take yours.’”

 

(I’m sorry that I failed to note who it was who kindly brought the link above to my attention.  I’m grateful for it.)

 

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  (Matthew 5:16)
