Upcoming Latter-Day Saint Events For Everyone

Monday, May 31, 2021
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is hosting online events for children and parents, and single adults on Sunday, June 6 and June 13, respectively.  Everyone is invited to participate.
 
About the broadcasts, President Jason J. Isaacson of the Chattanooga Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said, “It is wonderful to live at a time when a living prophet and apostles speak to us.  I hope that the children, youth, parents and single adults of all ages in the Chattanooga area will tune in to watch and hear the messages prayerfully prepared for them by true messengers of Jesus Christ.”
 
On Sunday, June 6, the Church will broadcast a one-hour presentation for parents and leaders focusing on youth and children.  Featured speakers, including President M.
Russell Ballard, acting president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, will talk about ways to help youth and children strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ, especially as pandemic restrictions lift and activities resume.  The presentation will be broadcast at 6 p.m. at ChildrenandYouth.ChurchofJesusChrist.org.  
 
The Children and Youth program encourages spiritual, social, physical and intellectual development and is based on Luke 2:52 in which “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”  Resources, including personal development guidebooks, are available online for free to help children and youth follow Jesus Christ.

Bingham and Sister Sharon Eubank, first counselor in the Relief Society general presidency.  As reported at newsroom.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, Elder Andersen said, “We know that many single adults are facing difficult challenges or have questions or concerns,” adding that “the Savior’s love can heal every sorrow.  We hope to be able to share the incomparable love of the Savior with our friends around the world.”

Roy Exum: How Can Any Forget?

It was noted by the national media – and me – earlier this week when President Joe Biden failed to salute one the greatest days in America’s history. D-Day, the June 6th attack at Normandy, France, was celebrated on Sunday and what I believe was the first time in about 80 years the hard-fought triumph over evil was ignored by The White House.
