Video: Taking the Mystery Out of Mormon Temple Worship
The description for this new temple video: "Elder William Walker gives a tour of the temple and explains why temples are important to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints".
And may I just say, this new LDS video is unlike any other temple video I've seen. After watching it I knew I wanted to share this with everyone I know -- member or not. Beside the exquisite videography that was taken in many of our temples, the conversational tone of Elder Walker is incredibly warm and inviting. Although this is only a virtual tour of a temple, viewers will experience a very personal engagement with Elder Walker. It's a sacred glimpse into Mormon temple worship with an intimate feel -- almost hard to believe such a thing could be achieved through technology. I can't imagine anyone watching it and not coming away with a better understanding of why temples are important to Mormons, and feeling the Spirit in the process.
The other thing I really love about this temple video is the example that it sets for helping members to appropriately speak about temple worship. If those outside of our faith feel that we are reserved in speaking about Mormon temples, perhaps it's because we're not always comfortable knowing what is appropriate to say outside of the temple. After watching this video you'll more than likely have a new enthusiasm, and confidence, for helping others to better understand Mormon temple worship.

To compliment the temple video here's a very cool LDS infographic, that helps explain what Mormon temples are for -- and what makes them different from our chapelswhere we meet each Sunday for weekly worship services. (Updated 1/2014)
