    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.

    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.
