02:05 – When we lay hold on the things that bring eternal happiness they will be never become “slippery.” Blind guides lead people on snipe hunts.

14:45 – C.S. Lewis quote about a more majestic, longer-lasting love.

17:36 – Samuel’s warnings parallel an Egyptian text: The Instruction of Amenemope.

26:20 – Why are signs given by Samuel? Even with great signs we still have to choose.

30:39 – The signs of light at birth and darkness at death are types.

32:56 – We are saved by the merits of Christ, not our good works.

39:50 – Overcoming spiritual death by being brought back into the Father’s presence. The Atonement brings everyone back. What is the second death?

46:55 – Samuel’s prophecy of the future of the Lamanites. Love and hate can be misunderstood in this text. What is the historical context of God hating the Lamanites? How does this relate to ancient Near Eastern treaties?

55:57 – Summary of what led the Lamanites to where they are today.

1:00:14 – Samuel escapes their stones and arrows. The miracle of the Book of Mormon is preservation.

1:05:04 – The importance of striving for unity. The book of Helaman is a pattern for our day, exposing the weakness of a fragmented society that is deeply divided and contentious.

From following every Tabernacle Choir tour from 1991 to 2015, to witnessing the Church's first stake created in Brazil and the first two temple dedications in Africa, to snapping the now-iconic photo of President Gordon B. Hinckley and Sister Marjorie P. Hinckley’s historic visit to China, Avant looks back at her career covering the growth of the Church and shares her testimony strengthened through her unique experiences.  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.
