Sunday School Thought Questions
I got a new church calling! I'm a Gospel Doctrine teacher, and they asked me to teach next week. I laughed. I couldn't help it. When I told Mom about my new calling, she told me that Dad was going to be jealous and I thought he would start giving me books. Turns out we were both right :). That's okay, I appreciate all the resources I can get, which brings me to one of my New Year's resolutions. When I was in Primary I felt so out of the loop that I thought it would be fun to post a question on Facebook from the Class Member Study Guide and have my own personal Gospel Doctrine discussion with my friends and family. Now that it looks like I'm going to be teaching, then I really would like to get some feedback! So here is the question for the week...
Lesson 2: “Thou Wast Chosen Before Thou Wast Born”
In Abraham 3:11–12, 22–23 and Doctrine and Covenants 138:53–57, Abraham talks with the Lord face to face and learns that in the
premortal life many “noble and great” spirits were foreordained to their
President Joseph F.
Smith learns more about the “noble and great ones” in a vision of the
Savior’s visit to the spirit world before His Resurrection (D&C 138:53–57). Whom did President Joseph F. Smith see in his vision of the spirit world? What were these people foreordained to do?
Links have been added for your convenience, and I'd love your feedback!
Note: I'd like to ask class members," What might you have been foreordained to do?" But, I'm worried that might be to personal or need more time for reflection. I can give them time to think about it and a card to write on, but I wonder if it should be asked...
