Family Home Evening Ideas
This issue contains articles and activities that could be used for family home evening. The following are two ideas.
“I Need Thee Every Hour,” page 30: Just as the words of the hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour” helped Pak Mi-Jung decide to be baptized, hymns can have a powerful impact on our lives. Think of a time when the words of a hymn have blessed your life and consider sharing the experience with your family. Invite each family member to choose a favorite hymn and tell how it has blessed his or her life. Then sing each hymn with your family. (You might spread this out over a couple of weeks.)
“Prayers and Cathedrals,” page 68: After you read this story, display pictures of or mention the different churches in your city and talk about these questions with your family: What are some similarities we have with other religions? How does Heavenly Father feel about all of His children? How should we treat people who have different beliefs? Consider using the article “Balancing Truth and Tolerance” by Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (Liahona, Feb. 2013, 28–35) to help answer these questions.
