Emily W. Jensen: Today in the Bloggernacle: Humanitarian update and the Hill Cumorah circa 1922
Humanitarian update: Barett Christensen highlights the recent LDS Church's “Humanitarian Update (May 17, 2011)” that includes news about the Slave Lake, Alberta, forest fire, which has destroyed one-third of the homes there, including 10 members’ homes, as well as news regarding the Mississippi Valley flooding, where “No Church property has been affected.” Click in to learn more or donate.
Women’s Conference: You can now get many of the recent “BYU Women’s Conference” talks on-demand at BYU-TV! Awesome. Enjoy hours of listening to Sisters Julie B. Beck, Elaine S. Dalton, Kathy Clayton, Barbara Thompson and more. Hat-tip Mormon Women blog.
Hill Cumorah: Want to see a photo of the Hill Cumorah without its lush forest? Ardis E. Parshall takes us back almost 90 years in this “Palmyra Pilgrimage -1922” to show a very bare Hill Cumorah, after the old growth forest was cleared and before it was replanted it. Wow!
Temple picture: It’s been a while since I’ve featured a photo snapshot, but I loved this picture of the Salt Lake Temple found at this post titled “But if not…”. It is so artistic and beautiful. Check it out!
