Digestible: A beacon of light

by Rusty Lindquist on May 20, 2009 · 5 comments


“If you have seen one of the temples at night, fully lighted, you know what an impressive sight that can be. The house of the Lord, bathed in light, standing out in the darkness, becomes symbolic of the power and the inspiration of the gospel of Jesus Christ standing as a beacon in a world that sinks ever further into spiritual darkness” (Preparing to Enter the Holy Temple, 10).

Are you looking for a beacon of light in your life?  Try the temple.  It works.

The Temple is truly a beacon. Besides being the most holy place on earth, we learn things there that are only taught by the Spirit. I am so grateful for the light of the Temple!

I was just now searching around about this when I stumbled on your blog post. I’m only stopping by to say that I really liked reading this post, it is very well written. Are you going to blog more about this? It looks like there’s more material here for later posts.

I love to see the temples at night. it is unfortunate that they do not leave the lights on ALL night. I remember driving home one night (early morning (1 or 2 am I think), coming around the point of the mountain and looking for the Jordan River Temple…I couldn’t find it. It was a dissappointment…maybe what they say about the Holy Ghost is also true about temples…goes to sleep at midnight ;o)
