The news conference to announce plans to renovate the Salt Lake Temple is underway on Temple Square.
The Salt Lake Temple will be closed effective December 29, 2019. It will remain closed for a period of approximately four years in order to complete its renovation.
@NelsonRussellM
Every reasonable effort will be made to honor and maintain the temple’s historic beauty. We will strive to preserve its reverent setting and character as originally directed by President Brigham Young.

It makes sense that #MaundyThursday isn’t given attention in evangelical and moderate Christianity.

Even ones who might give a passing glance at #GoodFriday aren’t thrilled about today.
Because it’s not just about Jesus’ final meal and washing feet.

It’s about betrayal. It’s about a small group of disciples crossing from nuisances to security threats.

It’s about the Lord and Savior being arrested on false charges and taken away under police custody.
This story is anything but moderate.

And it takes a stunning side with those who are routinely ripped apart by a violent narrative from the conservatives and right-wing Christo-fascists in this country.

MUELLER BLOCKADE END
Fake investigations by committee members will not delay what is about to be unleashed.
Was MUELLER the 'insurance' policy aka BLOCKADE designed to limit/restrict POTUS' ability to enforce the law?

Full Moon Report: April 19th Friday morning at 7:13 am eastern is the full moon in Libra. The positioning is significant because this is the second full moon in a row in the sign of Libra and at the last degrees of Libra.
Full Moons signal endings and closures. The March full
2. l moon in Libra also carried with it the energetics of new beginnings. This full moon at the end of Libra will focus back on culminations and endings and for many in a dramatic way.
Full Moon and its energy illuminates the path ahead. Shows us what has been hiding in
3. the shadows and often shines a Light on one particular area of life where endings are at hand or shadow lingers as obstacle. Notice where this full moon is drawing your attention. For me it's health (yes I am fine but ready for a notch up) and business model change.

On #PalmSunday, those of us who are Christians are reminded that Jesus' entire journey has been one of humility and service. He has healed the sick, fed the hungry, washed the feet of his disciples, given succor to those in need. We must follow his lead and do the same.🌿
As we enter into the holiest week on the Christian calendar, the final days of #Lent, what is our own journey toward #HolyThursday, #GoodFriday and finally, #Easter?
How do we walk with Christ through these days? How do we re-dedicate ourselves to the gospel and to our faith?🌿
The current political climate is fraught, as was that of Jesus'. But he stood against the unjust oppressor and with oppressed people. As Jesus prayed the night before he was taken by Pilate, he prayed for the cup to pass him by. He prayed for strength. He prayed for purpose. 🌿

As it is #GoodFriday, I wanted to share a brief thread about my favourite moment in #Mengelberg's recording of the #Bach #StMatthewPassion.

It's the tiny arioso just before the famous aria 'Aus Liebe':
open.spotify.com/track/6T1TwUkc…
The moment I mean in particular happens near the end.

In response to Pilate's question 'What has he done to cause this uproar?', the soprano (representing the childlike Christian soul) has summed up all of Jesus' good deeds. She colours these beautifully according to the text.
The music intensifies, reaching a high point at the line 'he raised up the weary and grieving'. She (sung here by Jo Vincent) is expressing ardent love and thrilled admiration for Jesus' miraculous and benevolent deeds.

"Between 1880 to 1940, white Christians lynched nearly five thousand black men & women in a manner with obvious echoes of the Roman crucifixion of Jesus. Yet these 'Christians' did not see the irony or contradiction in their actions.”- James H. Cone, The Cross & The Lynching Tree
2. Just as Cone notes, "The conspicuous absence of the lynching tree in American theological discourse and preaching is profoundly revealing," so too is theological condemnation of racist police shootings also conspicuously missing—particularly in white churches.
3. But here's the truth: You can't talk about #GoodFriday with any kind of moral relevance—any understanding of how Christ's crucifixion occurs all around us—without discussing police shootings, without condemning the murder of black bodies by agents of the state.

12pm, #GoodFriday: “There was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.” When the Light of the world goes dark, not even the sun can shine.
c.2pm, #GoodFriday: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Suffocating to death, naked & in agony, he cries out for grace.
3pm, #GoodFriday: “It is completed!” The temple curtain is torn in two, the dead rise, and the centurion believes. Tetelestai.

Do you know My King, Jesus?
Allow me to introduce Him to you.
(Credit: Sermon from Rev S.M. Lockridge)
#GoodFriday #HolyWeek #Passover
He's the King of the Jews.
He's the King of Israel.
He's the King of Righteousness.
He's the King of the Ages.
He's the King of Heaven.
He's the King of Glory.
He's the King of Kings, and He's the Lord of Lords.
That's my King. David said, "The Heavens declare the glory of God &
the firmament shows His handiwork." My King is sovereign. No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply.
