Temple on Mount Zion Conference

Dear Temple Studies friends,

We are happy to let you know about a conference about the Temple on Mount Zion, that will be held at Brigham Young University on Saturday, October 25. This conference runs morning and afternoon on Saturday. 

The same weekend, on Friday evening and Saturday morning, the Sperry Symposium will also be taking place on BYU campus. Its theme is “The Ministry of Peter, the Chief Apostle.” Here’s a link to that program; some of its presentations relate to Temple Studies. http://religion.byu.edu/event/43rd-annual-sidney-b-sperry-symposium

Either or both of these programs are open to the public, free, and may be of interest to you.
