Which Memphis-area house of worship do you find most beautiful, spiritual, sacred? And why?
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints worship on Sundays at their local chapel but their highest form of sacred worship takes place in their Temples, one of which is located in Bartlett. These buildings are modestly beautiful from the outside and quietly elegant on the inside. Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. Temples are dedicated as Houses of the Lord and it is there that Latter-day Saints go to perform their most sacred sacraments including Eternal Marriage. The rites which are performed in the temple are not secret but sacred and that is why only faithful members of the Church are allow inside.
Temples are places of learning. Their principal purpose is to provide ordinances necessary for the children of God to enable them to return to dwell with Him. Temple ordinances lead to the greatest blessings available through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Everything in the Church — the meetings and activities, the missionary efforts, the lessons taught and the hymns — all lead to the work done in holy temples.
