298.2: Ritual and Worship (OT Gospel Doctrine Lesson 30, Sunday School)

“Come to the House of the Lord” 


The assigned scriptures speak of temple and Law, but the underlying lesson is one of reform and resolution, making changes and becoming better. I suggest keeping the discussion points in mind as you read and prepare:

  • What is proper worship? What does God really care about when it comes to religious practice?
  • How can we renew rituals in our own lives, take opportunities to engage more fully in practices that increase our well-being and spirituality?
  • What do we learn from Josiah’s response to the book of the law? How do we respond when new information illuminates the ways we can improve?
  • How scriptures and other sources can inspire us to improve
  • The examples of Hezekiah, Manasseh and Josiah could lead to a discussion about learning from good examples in our family history and overcoming the bad, doing better than previous generations
