I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, that I find it odd that Official Declaration 1, Official Declaration 2, and the Articles of Faith are all crammed into one week while The Family: A Proclamation to the World gets its own week. I mean, the Articles of Faith alone has two major classic Latter-day Saint books that focus on discussing and extrapolating from the document in great detail, each of which could function as a manual for Sunday School for a year on their own. Official Declarations 1 and 2 both deal with major topics in Church history. Official Declaration 2, for example, provides a great opportunity to discuss racism and address the issue. It’s a lot to merely gloss over in one week, particularly in a year where there really isn’t an overabundance of material to read through.
In any case, I’m working on some more substantive posts to cover this week’s topics, but for now, here are some of my major posts relating to the topics of each of the sections we’re discussing in “Come, Follow Me”
- Articles of Faith:
- Official Declaration 1:
- Official Declaration 2:
- The Family: A Proclamation to the World:
