Asking Questions: Panel Discussions
Sunday April 22, 2018
When ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. - Moroni 10:4
To be played at the end of the discussion
This activity is designed to further create a safe place for youth to ASK questions about the temple and receive answers. On Sunday, April 22, 2018, during the YM/YW hour, the panel discussions will take place in your ward. The questions below have been collected from youth in our temple district to be used in the discussions. Bishops will then preside over the discussion with two endowed YSA members. Bishops can choose which questions they want fielded to the YSA's and which ones they want to answer themselves. This is an opportunity for these YSA representatives, who are close in age to the youth, to look back and share things they wish they would have known as a youth. If time allows, the Bishop can open the meeting up for spontaneous questions, again emphasizing that we want the youth to walk away knowing they can ask questions.
Before, or after, the discussion, take some time to introduce the quote by President Nelson. Over the coming weeks work with your youth, during opening exercises, to memorize the quote in preparation for reciting it during the celebration.
Who is Invited:
Youth, Friends of Youth, Youth Leaders
Ward youth leaders and the Bishop can invite a few members of the ward to participate in the panel. The Bishop will also contact the YSA representatives and coordinate with them.
