Thanks for the tidbits.

I would argue Pastor Bess does not understand Mormon's if he thinks the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City is a central, holy place. The main Holy Place in Salt Lake City is the Salt Lake Temple. Temples are clearly the most holy and sacred places to Mormons. In the last decade I would argue that the Conference Center is a much more important sacred space than the Tabernacle has been, but Temples are always the most holy of spaces.

It is the thought that counts, John Pack. It's nice that the pastor recognizes the Tabernacle as a special place. I remember seeing it for the first time. It did indeed seem holy to a young girl of 12. There was no Conference Center and I was unable at that time to go to the temple.

I'm just wondering how the article went from "holy places" to first editions.
