Doctrine & Covenants Lessons

For many decades, this beautiful mural by Everett C. Thorpe (1904-1983) graced the front of the Providence, Utah, 2nd Ward chapel. I stared at this painting during Sacrament meeting every Sunday of my childhood. Ev Thorpe was a Providence native and a professor of art at Utah State University. Hearing that such pioneer murals would be removed, to replace our focus on Christ and not church history, a former bishop of ours paid an artist to copy out the mural and make prints on home-sized canvases. This is a photograph of my copy. (As of October 2022, the mural still hangs in the chapel.)

Hello, I have enjoyed your lessons for a number of years now. Thank you for the time and energy spent to teach the gospel. Can you tell me when Section 137, 138 will be ready?

I'm glad my blog has been helpful!
I don't have anything prepared on Section 137 but I do have a great lesson for Section 138. I'll link it in now.

The mural is still hanging in the chapel. Do you know a way I could get a copy?

I think it was a limited edition, but I'll ask around and post here if I find anything out.

And yes, I went to this chapel recently and was surprised to find the painting still there! I have edited the post.
