Gospel Principles 7: The Holy Ghost
We had some miscommunication about which volunteer would put up the lesson this week, so I thought I’d throw a question out there that might be interesting to discuss. I’m hoping that another blogger or two will add to this post with their own question in the next day or two.
Above all, we need you teachers out there to comment and contribute your own ideas for the lesson. Thank you!
1.) I was personally interested in the role of the Holy Ghost. This is what the lesson says. “The mission of the Holy Ghost is to bear witness of the Father and the Son and of the truth of all things.”
I like how broad that last phrase is. “‘The truth of all things.” To me it also communicates how personal the HG can be, since we all have different questions at different points and need the HG’s guidance in our unique lives. It reminds me of our doctrine of personal revelation – that the Spirit is there to inspire and guide us in our individual lives. What experiences of particular and powerful insight have you had with personal revelation? Have any of those been life-changing moments, in which your perspective was altered in an important way?
Please do add your own questions below!
Note: This lesson was originally written for the Relief Society audience in 2010-2011, when the Gospel Principles manual was temporarily used as curriculum for Relief Society, Elders Quorum and High Priest classes. The lesson may require adaptation for Gospel Principles classes, which are mixed gender and primarily serve new members and investigators of the church.
