Techie tip: Two different blogs highlighted two different aspects of the LDS Church History Department. First Larry Richman points out how the Church History Department has put up “Old Church Magazines Online,” five publications in all, scanned and ready to be perused. Secondly, Bruce Crow describes his experience with the “New CHL Online Catalogue” in requesting a scanned document: “Just six days later came the reply. A pdf file showing a scanned image of the file I wanted. It was one page, and the scan was definitely good enough to read. I was pleased with the whole process. I needed no guidance or instruction, and I got exactly what I asked for. My only issue was I was given the impression that the image would be made available for viewing online. Instead I received an email attachment. I'm left to wonder if I misunderstood the intended process (which would not be unusual), or whether a different process was followed for some unknown reason. But my confusion on that point doesn't reduce the usefulness of this new service, and my excitement over new material to work with. Easily 9 out of 10. Maybe even 9.5!!! Thanks to the CHL!” Cool!

Mormon Messages for Youth: Reclaimed

Just as a garbage dump can be turned into a beautiful park, a life of sin can be cleansed and changed through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Elder Shayne M. Bowen teaches: "The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. It can clean, reclaim and sanctify even you."
