I am directing this question to all the Gospel Doctrine instructors out there. How are you planning to discuss lesson 31 on celestial marriage?
Iâ€™ve gone through the manual several times, but it seems pretty empty scripturally, especially considering much of D&C 132 seems to be about plural marriage. I prefer using exclusively scriptures in my lesson and try to get away from using too many quotes.
In addition, I like to make my lesson practical and personally applicable. Iâ€™m not sure how discussing the post-mortal rewards of celestial marriage has any real benefit to people, especially when most of the class members already know it.
Iâ€™m considering using the first four verses of D&C 131 as a jumping point to other scriptures that discuss how we should conduct ourselves in marriage.
How about you?
