Brother Dunford

Spring 2023

Temples: Ancient & Modern; 390r-96


Course Overview:

This class is built upon the invitation from President Nelson during the October 2021 General Conference, that everyong who has made temple covenants "seek--prayerfully and consistently--to understand temple covenants and ordinances." Whether you have attended the temple or are preparing to do so, this class will explore the purpose of temples, the covenants we make within them, and how to draw closer to the Savior through a better understanding of His temples.

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.
