What happened on Sunday

Today we enjoyed a visit from our stake Relief Society President Louella and her councilor Katie.
They led us in a special lesson based on a talk by sister Elaine S. Dalton (she is the Young Women General President).
To read the original talk, click the link below:
A Return to Virtue Ensign, Nov 2008, 78–80
Katie began the lesson by talking about the Temple. She wrote the word Temple on the board and drew a frame around it to emphasize that the temple is central to what we do (and can become) in the Gospel, and stated that temple worthiness and blessings are the reason behind sister Dalton's call to return to virtue.
There were too many good points discussed to mention them all here. I especially liked the quote from president Monson and also the reminder that the word "virtue" comes from the latin word for strength.

Don't forget that next week there won't be any meetings at the Rosny chapel, as we will all be at the stake centre for the General Conference Broadcast. The Relief Society session will be broadcast the following week (Oct 18th at 7pm).
