Church History Gems: Honoring the Pioneers


Gems on Church History
Honoring the Pioneers
---------------------------------------------------
"It is not enough to study or reenact the accomplishments of our pioneers. We need to identify the great, eternal principles they applied to achieve all they achieved for our benefit and then apply those principles to the challenges of our day. In that way we honor their pioneering efforts, and we also reaffirm our heritage and strengthen its capacity to bless our own posterity and those millions of our Heavenly Father's children who have yet to hear and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are all pioneers in doing so."

Topic: Pioneers, heritage

(Dallin H. Oaks, "Following the Pioneers," Ensign, Nov. 1997, 72)
