The Lord has given us the opportunity to repent and return to Him on a weekly basis. He knew we would fall short, so he prepared a way for us to return to Him. Again. And again. And again. And again. This is part of why attending our Sunday meetings is so vital to our spiritual health: We need to partake of the sacrament and renew our covenants. We need to repent. And we need forgiveness. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland explained last April that the new, modified Sunday schedule is in part “to reduce the complexity of the meeting schedule in a way that properly emphasizes the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper as the sacred, acknowledged focal point of our weekly worship experience."
