The Covenant of the Fertile Field
Charlotte, thank you. That was beautiful. What a talent. [A student had just played “Joseph Smith’s First Prayer” as a piano solo.] I hope you all had a chance to think about that event. I did. You know, our Church rises and falls on that event. It either happened or it didn’t happen. If it didn’t happen, we’re just having a good time. We could probably have a better time, but we’re just having a really good time. But brothers and sisters, it did happen. Joseph Smith did kneel. He did go, querying two things to his Father in Heaven: first was his standing before the Lord, and the second had to do with the great question that we all know about, which church he should join. And so it happened, and thank you Charlotte for letting us reflect and ponder on that event.
