Home Church Week 33/Be Not Ashamed

What does it mean to take the name of Jesus Christ upon us?
 How do we comfort those who are suffering?  
What is Heavenly Father's plan for us?
How do we love without judgment?  
These are the topics we discussed in the Nielson family home church on Sunday.
We discussed why people are ashamed to take upon him/herself 
the name of Jesus Christ, and how we can be bold in 
sharing our testimonies with everyone.
All those answers are given in Mormon chapters 7-9 in The Book of Mormon,
which we had already read throughout the week.
Then we focused on missionary work and sharing the gospel.
We all committed to open our mouth and sharing the good news of the 
of Christ with everyone we meet and converse with.
That means friends at school,
 on our Zoom meetings, at the grocrey store, and at work.
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature"!!
“Except in the case of His only perfect Begotten Son, imperfect people are
 all God has ever had to work with. … 
When you see imperfection, remember that the limitation is
 not in the divinity of the work” 
In the evening, Christian prepared his traditional
'Mr. Nielson Sunday dinner' of vinegar beets,
garlic mashed potatoes, maple carrots, green salad, and rolls.
Then he and I went into the office to attend our
2 hour Church zoom with other members of our area congregation.
 We discuss good practices for money management and job skills.
It's a 13-week commitment and we're learning so much.
When it's over at 8:00, Clane has cleaned up, and
 with a Sunday dessert in the oven.
These sweet family Sundays are numbered as we anticipate Claire's
exciting mission in January.  I'm soaking up as much as I can!
