of these men to the apostleship (Not the Melchizedek Priesthood) reduces the time of their ordination to the period between the 15th of May, 1829, and April 6, 1830. But the time within which the ordination took place may be still further reduced. In a revelation bearing the date of June, 1829, making known the calling of the Twelve Apostles in these last days, and addressed to Oliver Cowdery and David Whitmer, the Lord said: "I speak unto you, even as unto Paul mine Apostle, for you are called even with that same calling with which he was called." As this could scarcely be said of men who had not been ordained to the same holy apostleship as that held by Paul, and consequently to the Melchizedek Priesthood, the conclusion is reasonable that

On April 6, 1830 in Fayette, NY Joseph F. Smith created the LDS church. The saints endured many trials moving from one place to the next including Ohio, Nauvoo, and multiple places in Missouri. After the Martyr of Joseph smith the first wagons began to leave Nauvoo. There were a total of ten wagon companies along with many other smaller groups that also made the trek for a new land of hope and promise known as Zion or the Salt Lake valley.

Growing up in a religious Jewish household, where his father devoted his life to the study of the Torah while his mother and sister worked in their family store, Elie 's "place was in the house of study" (Wiesel 4). Religion was very important to Elie as that is all that he knew, he goes as far as to ask his father "to find me a master who can guide me in the studies of Kabbalah", to which his father responds "you are too young for that… one must be thirty before venturing into the world of mysticism" (Wiesel 4). Elie Wiesel 's faith and understanding of the Jewish religion was not only tested throughout the book, but also strengthened through the use of repetition and varied sentence style, in which he stops his narrative flow in order to question himself and his faith in God. Through the use of these themes Wiesel learns to never give up hope so that one day he would be able to forgive those who had
Book Review: Three Days This book, written by Chris Stepien, was one suggesting details about the three days Jesus was missing after he, his family, and the rest of his town’s caravan visited Jerusalem for the Passover tradition. All that can be found in the Bible to learn about this experience are twelve verses in Luke’s Gospel, but Stepien used his imagination and studies to write a novel on what may have happened in that time. The book seems slow to start, but it requires some of the details given at this point in the story for later parts to come together. The first few chapters of the book discuss young Jesus’ day to day life, including his family, his friends, and his home town, Nazareth. As this is all explained, it is clear that Jesus stands out from the other young people in the town in a spiritual way, as he always is quoting scripture and doing well in his classes with the Rabbi.
In the article entitled “Salvation,” by: Langston Hughes recounts an experience at the age of twelve in which he was pressured to into believing in something is was unsure of. Hughes starts by giving background information to the readers about his memory in which he was at his Auntie Reed’s church and for weeks there had been a big revival; thus, one of the take ways from this was sinners being brought to Christ. He adds that before the end of the revival there was a special meeting for the children and that his Aunt escorted him to the front row to sit with the other children on the mourner’s bench until they were saved. His Aunt starts to describe that “you could see and hear and feel Jesus in your soul” and with no doubt, Hughes believes

The book that I have chosen to do my reading response over is The Fire Next Time written by James Baldwin. This book is split up into two parts or letters. The first part is titled “My Dungeon Shook: Letter to My Nephew on the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Emancipation.” The first part, written in a letter format to Baldwin 's fourteen year old nephew, talks over the crucial role of race in America’s history. The second portion of the book is titled “Down At The Cross: Letter from a Region in My Mind.” This part of the book looks at the connections between race and religion. Mostly on Baldwin 's connections with the Christian church as a youth, and the Islamic concepts of others there in Harlem.
How He Came to Be Phil Jackson was raised in a farm community in North Dakota by parents who were both Pentecostal ministers and very strict practitioners of their faith. He explains in his book, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success (2013), that after growing up with such rigid rules and guidelines, he has taken an opposite approach as an adult and has become much more easy going and relaxed (p.15). He wrote about his search for spiritual grounding where he studied many different religions and their practices throughout his years in college. After combining many of them together he came up with his own set of beliefs and practices that provides him with the foundation he felt he needed all along (p. 15). This search for spiritual guidance had a profound impact on his professional career as a coach.
