Ep 74 | 3 Nephi 20-26, Come Follow Me (Oct 12-18)
1 hr 2 min

00:25 – The Savior’s favorite story is the triumph of the restoration and the gathering of the House of Israel.

18:12 – 3 Nephi 20-22 is a beautifully constructed chiasm, the apex of which is the sign of the covenant in 3 Nephi 21.4. This is the bringing forth of the Book of Mormon in America to the seed of Nephi in our day.

23:39 – The Threshing Floor is historically tied to the foundation of the Holy of Holies, which has ritual connection to the exaltation of the family.

25:51 – Jesus quotes Micah 5 and the prophecy of the lion among sheep. This is a Millennial prophecy, symbolic of victory at the Savior’s return.

31:59 – The Promise of Invulnerability is the heritage of the followers of Christ and should be read from an eternal perspective.

41:14 – Jesus asks why they didn’t record that many saints would rise from the dead and minister to them. Jesus pauses to emphasize that He will be with us in the darkest of times.

47:00 – He prepared a way for Joseph to escape the loss of the 116 pages.

49:03 – Jesus quotes Malachi to the Nephites. This demonstrates that Heavenly Father’s purpose is to bind families for eternity.

55:08 – Passing the test of the Book of Mormon will unlock additional scripture.

President Russell M. Nelson’s historic invitation to #GiveThanks
President Russell M. Nelson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, issued a historic invitation to the world on Friday, Nov. 20. The “fast-acting, long-lasting spiritual remedy” — during this time defined by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, racism, violence, political tensions and a lack of civility — is gratitude. On this podcast, historian Richard E. Turley Jr. reflects on this and other prophetic invitations. Most interesting to Turley is that at a time in history when a disease has brought the world to its knees, the president of the Church is a renowned medical doctor. “What makes his invitation interesting is that he says, ‘As a medical doctor, I'm interested in what's happening to try to resolve this pandemic. But I'm going to offer you a solution that may be a little bit counterintuitive,’” said Turley, a retired managing director of the Church’s Communications Department and former assistant Church historian and recorder.  The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience.  See for privacy information.

55. Transformations of Faith - Thomas McConkie
*** Find out more at *** In this episode, we spoke with Thomas McConkie about something really exciting that he’s been working on over the past year in partnership with Faith Matters. Thomas has created an online course called Transformations of Faith. Many of our listeners are familiar with Thomas’s unique story. He’s a mindfulness teacher and practitioner of over 20 years, a committed and thoughtful Latter-day Saint, and a researcher and teacher in the field of adult development. In Transformations of Faith, Thomas draws on all three of these perspectives to create some truly transformative insights and practices. It’s an extraordinarily rich course with over 10 hours of teaching and guided meditations by Thomas, plus some fascinating conversations between Thomas and Adam Miller in which they dive deeper into the ideas in the course. Faith Matters is a non-profit organization, but we’ve made a substantial investment to produce this course because we believe what Thomas has to share  will be life-changing for many people. For that reason, the course is the first product we’ve made available for purchase through Faith Matters. We’re offering a discounted price of $98 for the first 100 purchasers. We’ve also decided to make financial aid available for those who can’t currently afford it — we don’t want money to be the reason anyone misses out on the course. Subscribers will also be able to access an audio-only version of the course on a private podcast channel. For those of us who have taken the course, it’s been a subject of constant conversation. Many of the ideas and practices Thomas shared have truly been life-changing and opened up new awareness for both of us about ourselves and others around us that we simply couldn’t see before. We expect we’ll be back to it over and over again to process and uncover new layers of meaning. We think it could be particularly helpful if you feel spiritually or emotionally stuck or stagnant, or if you struggle with anxiety. You can head to in order to see more detail about the course, watch a sample video, and enroll.  We had a ton of fun talking with Thomas about some of the most interesting and impactful moments in the course for this episode of the podcast. We can’t wait for you to listen and hope you enjoy the conversation.
