So a few years ago when I was coming back to the church I heard that a photographer somehow sneaked into a temple and he or she "threatened" the church that he would make those images public unless the church would buy the pictures from him, so in response to his threats the church published a temple calendar with images of celestial rooms and baptisimal faunts from multiple temples. Anyhow, these messages the church has produced has made me think about how the media can be utilized. Fortunately our church leaders prefer not to get involved in a bickering contest to help people understand what we do and believe in. Instead, they simple use the same tools the adversary uses to explain the purpose of a temple. I love the temple, and I am so glad the church is doing this not only for obvious reasons, but personally it helps me so much to have daily reminder of the temple and everytime I view these segments it brings me a moment of peace. My favorite part of this video is what Elder Nelson says" Everyone is welcomed who prepares well."
