Dr. Davis will provide general information about this American original religion, founded in 1830 by Joseph Smith in upstate New York. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has distinctive practices, and beliefs about the afterlife, a pre-existence, Jesus in America, and the nature of God, that set it apart from other Christian denominations.
We meet at Somers Lounge, which is the first building you encounter after entering the campus of the College of St. Scholastica from the College Street entrance. The doors open at 9:30 am and the meeting begins at 10:00 am. We will be social distancing (four to a table) and, because we believe in science, will be vaccinated. After the presentation, those who are interested can gather in the cafeteria one floor below for a breakfast buffet and stimulating conversation.
