STORIES FROM THE ROAD


JUL 06, 1994

THE TEMPLE

Just out of curiosity since I was in the state of the Latter Day States (Mormons), I decided to stop and check out one of their churches. One of the things that made me a bit worried about my experience to come was that there was no cross on the steeple. I found out that there are no crosses at all in all of the building and ground even though they say that this is a Christian ministry.

I decided to check out the Temple in Bringham City, UT. There were supposed tobe tours of the temple. The building was quite huge. It's hard to believe that the majority of this complex had been built by hand out of materials at hand which was mostly stone. Inside the building, a lot of the stone was textured and painted so that you would believe that it was made out of wood.

When I got inside, two ladies greeted me but only one lady did all of the talking. The look on their faces was one where you wouldn't think that they thought kindly to the crosses on my safety vest. We went around the building and the lady who did the talk read from a script.

I wanted to see if they could tell about her faith in her own words. I had already heard about the history about how the Mormon faith was founded. Kindly, I told the lady that I would like to her what she had to say on her own and I sort of covered the script with one of my gloved hands but the lady got frustrated because I was something that she wasn't trained to deal with.
