We travelled to the Atlanta, Georgia temple in order to attend its open house. We had a lovely time. It was a fitting way to spend part of Easter weekend. Christ’s Atonement and resurrection are essential to the temple; the temple is founded upon Christ. It is His house, a place a holiness. It is the culmination of all His work, for in the temple we receive ordinances necessary for our salvation. We can draw nearer to God in the temple than in any other place (except maybe our homes when they are filled with love and with the Spirit). The unity with God that comes through the Atonement is given power in the ordinances of the temple. The temple truly is the house of God. You can learn more about the temple open house (it’s all done now – yesterday was the last day) here. You can learn more about temples here or here.
