Speech in Salt Lake City at the famous Mormon Tabernacle given by then-President of the United States, John F. Kennedy on September 26, 1963.

This is only in audio format. I would have preferred to have video however, I am grateful that I was able to get what I could. The picture is of JFK standing next to David O. Mckay, Prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1951 to 1970.

In Part I, JFK says, “Of all the stories of American pioneers and settlers, none is more inspiring than the Mormon trail. The qualities of the founders of this community are the qualities that we seek in America, the qualities which we like to feel this country has, courage, patience, faith, self-reliance, perseverance, and, above all, an unflagging determination to see the right prevail.”

“If our task on occasion seems hopeless, if we despair of ever working our will on the other 94 percent of the world population, then let us remember that the Mormons of a century ago were a persecuted and prosecuted minority, harried from place to place, the victims of violence and occasionally murder, while today, in the short space of 100 years, their faith and works are known and respected the world around, and their voices heard in the highest councils of this country. As the Mormons succeeded, so America can succeed, if we will not give up or turn back.”

Note: In his opening words the President referred to Frank E. Moss, U.S. Senator from Utah; David O. McKay, President of the Mormon Church, and Hugh B. Brown, his First Counselor; Stewart L. Udall, Secretary of the Interior; George Dewey Clyde, Governor of Utah; and Calvin W. Rawlings of Salt Lake City, Democratic National Committeeman for Utah.

Shrine for Christ’s Precursor , Saint John The Baptist Parish Church – Lian, Batangas, Philippines

As early as 1807, Lian was already under a parish; its church edifice was said to be a granary house, which was rebuilt by the Jesuits after an uprising in 1745. However, official sources declare the chapel, which first stood in the present site of the shrine, was only created in 1870.

The chapel, which had undergone multiple reconstructions and remodelling, only lasted until 1950. But on the same site, where it was located, a new edifice with a “more modern look” was built. This building is currently being renovated to improve the facilities, especially to accommodate the pilgrims.

“St. John the Baptist regularly visits those whose faith in God is strengthened further through his intercessions,” Arguelles said in Filipino. However, the archbishop reminded devotees that the religious icon is still a representation, but stressed just the same that it stands for a person of high esteem.

Name: John Denver
(December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997)

Though he composed and sang some of the most peaceful and beautiful songs of his generation, John Denver fought demons and an addiction to alcohol.
Denver was not legally permitted to fly at the time of the accident.
Denver’s life ended suddenly when the plane he was flying, an experimental Rutan Long-EX, crashed into Monterey Bay near Pacific Grove, Calif.
Post-accident investigation by the NTSB showed that the leading cause of the accident was Denver’s inability to switch fuel tanks during flight.
John Denver was not born in Colorado or West Virginia. Denver was actually born in Roswell, N.M. as Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997)
His divorce from Annie Denver Anne Martell was a bitter battle: The woman who inspired “Annie’s Song,” which was written on a ski lift in 10 minutes, battled John over the division of property during their 1982 divorce proceedings. John Denver became so enraged with his estranged wife that he tried to choke her. He then took a chainsaw to their marital bed and sawed it in half.
He married again and lived in Aspen continuously until his death.
Funeral services were held at Faith Presbyterian Church in Aurora, Colorado, on October 17, 1997, officiated by Pastor Les Felker, a retired Air Force chaplain, following which Denver’s remains were cremated and his ashes were scattered in the Rocky Mountains.

“Death is not an ending, but a symbol of movement along the path upon which we are all traveling. As it may be painful to lose contact with the physical aspect of one we love, the Spirit can never be lost. We have been and always will be a part of each other.”
— John Denver

Mormon Stories #526: John Hamer on Community of Christ as Church Home for Transitioning Mormons Pt 1

Views:18354|Rating:4.49|View Time:1:18:10Minutes|Likes:122|Dislikes:14
Mormon Stories alumnus John Hamer returns to talk about Community of Christ as a viable spiritual home for transitioning Mormons in this two-part video series. John Hamer was raised LDS, but became a doubting teenager and left organized religion altogether as an adult. In 2010, he joined Community of Christ and currently serves as pastor of its congregation in downtown Toronto, Canada.

In part 1, John Hamer sits down with John Dehlin and makes the case for “non-literalistic” religion. (The presentation is illustrated with John Hamer’s amazing diagrams, so the podcast audience is advised to watch the YouTube version.) John Hamer describes how a church with Restoration roots has evolved beyond doctrine and dogma to become inclusive of the LGBT community and a wide diversity of individual beliefs.

In part 2, John Dehlin challenges John Hamer with tough questions, including whether it is possible for some transitioning Mormons who feel real betrayal to join a church that traces its origin to Joseph Smith, or, indeed, any organized religion. The resulting dialogue was wide-ranging and intensely fascinating. Regardless of where you are in your own Mormon journey, you’ll surely find John Hamer’s case for Community of Christ thought-provoking.

In the course of their discussions, John Hamer referenced the “Latter-day Seekers” facebook group and the website
