HAVING MANY REVELATIONS DAILY: HOW TO READ A PATRIARCHAL BLESSING

UPDATE: For those who RSVP’d to attend in-person, the COVID-19 transmission risk for Arlington has been changed to "substantial". In accordance with CDC and local jurisdiction guidance, masks are to be worn by all attendees at indoor events. The fireside dinner will be held outside in the building courtyard as planned. Masks are recommended for anyone not yet vaccinated. The Crystal City meetinghouse now has an indoor mask requirement, so we will all need to wear masks when inside the building, including when listening to the fireside speaker.

We prosper when we act on a sense of identity and destiny. When disruptions come and we lose our sense of direction, we tend to spiral downward. Our life journey becomes an exercise in wandering. The associated feelings are often loneliness and despair. In the Church, we have access to a gift that can help. It is called a patriarchal blessing. Yet many people receive patriarchal blessings and then express disappointment. They find little value. In contrast, there are a few who find great value in their blessing. As they organize their lives to the document they grow in sense of purpose and meaning. How is this possible? In this session, we will consider how to read a patriarchal blessing, how to “cause” it to work, and how to use it to obtain many revelations daily.
Your Authentic Questions:
Once you RSVP, a paper on the above topic will be emailed to you. Please read it and formulate your one most authentic question. An authentic question is a question you truly care about but you do not know the answer to. Please submit your question by replying to the email you received no later than Sunday, July 25, 2021. Your questions will be forwarded to the speaker and he will turn them into a framework of discussion.
