Finding Power and Strength in the Covenants and Symbols of the Temple

Syllabus

Course Overview:

I am thrilled to welcome you to Finding Power in the Covenants and Symbols of the Temple. In the October 2012 General Conference, President Nelson said, "to each of you who has made temple covenants, I plead with you to seek—-prayerfully and consistently—-to understand temple covenants and ordinances. Spiritual doors will open. You will learn how to part the veil between heaven and earth, how to ask for God’s angels to attend you, and how better to receive direction from heaven. Your diligent efforts to do so will reinforce and strengthen your spiritual foundation." In this class, we will take a close look at many of the symbols the Lord presents in His Holy House as well as the 5 main covenants we make there. We will learn how to get more out of those symbols and covenants, find the deep meaning in them, and apply them to our lives.

What to Expect:

Brother Dunford's style is mostly presentation. His goal is to cover a breadth and depth of the scriptures that you have not seen; such that you walk away from class each day saying, "I've never made that connection before!"

Participation by students is voluntary and appreciated, but not expected. You will never be called upon to speak, but if you raise your hand, your response will be welcomed and your insight valued.

This course is quite fluid. Brother Dunford will bring a suggested outline of topics to discuss, but that outline can and will be adjusted to meet the needs and desires of the class. Students are encouraged to suggest topics they would like discussed.
