Seminary Lesson - D&C 124

The threefold mission of the Church is to proclaim the gospel, perfect the Saints, and redeem the dead.

As part of this lesson the manual suggests using a camera displayed on a tripod to provide an object lesson.  I asked the seminary students to tell me what purpose a tripod serves in taking pictures and what might happen to your picture if your tripod were missing a leg.  I took this a little further and asked them to write their answers on a piece of post-it note paper.  One by one they came up front and displayed their answer on the tripod.  After each had their chance to share their response...we talked about the threefold mission of the church.  I really loved this object lesson and thought it might spark an idea for those of you teaching other lessons based on this same theme.

The mission of the Church is Glorious!
