Now's your chance
If you've ever wondered what Mormons believe, this weekend is the time for you to investigate. Twice a year, Mormons have a church-wide gathering we call General Conference. Those who live nearby or make a special effort attend in person in Salt Lake City. The rest of us just listen or watch from wherever we are.
The program consists of lots of speeches given by the church leaders, and beautiful music performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir or other specialty choirs. During the speeches, you'll hear religious stories, allegories, and quotes from sources as varied as the Apocrypha (really!), Longfellow, Shakespeare, and of course, the Bible and Book of Mormon.
Check it out if you're interested. You can listen or watch online at www.lds.org.
