“The Hearts of the Children Shall Turn to Their Fathers”
Previous episodes on the temple have discussed the history of temple work and the theology behind redeeming the dead. This lesson approaches temple work from the perspective of the member performing the vicarious ordinances, and next lesson will cover family history. We explore the value of temple work, but also raise the question: how do we balance caring for the dead with caring for the living?
