Understanding the Mormons

The Mormon Church, which began in the 1820s with the supposed divine revelations of Joseph Smith in upstate New York, is fascinating and not a little out there. This six-part Bible study examines the group's origins (Joseph Smith, The Book of Mormon, Brigham Young, and others); the discrepancy between Mormon beliefs and orthodox Christian teaching and faith; the meaning of some of its puzzling rituals (baptism of the dead, endowments for the living and dead, temple garments, celestial marriage); and the prominence of the temple in the life of a Mormon.


Tee Time: February 26
In a few short months the Men's NetWork will be hosting a golf tournament at the Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-In-the-Hills, Florida (37 miles northwest of Orlando). It covers four days and three nights, running from Thursday, February 26, to Sunday, March 1, 2015.


Fatherhood Stories
The Men's NetWork has been asked to bring out a new video Bible study about the dynamics of being a father. But we're not just trying to reach new dads out there who are starting on the road of fatherhood. We especially want to reach fathers who are well down that road and still need some tips on fathering. Do any of these questions sound familiar: how do I guide my child through teenage years or early adulthood? How do I mend fences or rebuild bridges? How do I handle those times my children disappointed me? How can I pass my Christian faith on to my kids and grandkids?


Timely Meditations for Your Day
Looking for a wise word or a nugget of Scripture to help sweep out the mental cobwebs? That's where the Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries come in. To find words of hope, go to our website and click here! You'll find the Daily Devotion under The Lutheran Hour sermon on the right.


No-Strings-Attached Survey
We want to send a special thanks to the leaders and participants who took the time to fill out an online survey on one of our Men's NetWork video Bible studies. We learned that many of you don't realize we have apps for several of our newer studies. Apps give you the flexibility of doing a Bible study on your tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android device, Mac or PC. Now that's what we call a pretty sweet deal!


We're All in This Together
America was shocked last week when it learned that Robin Williams had died. We were even more shocked to learn his death came by his own hand. My first thought was how happy and upbeat he always seemed to be. But as the week went by Williams' struggles came to light: persistent financial stress, a cancelled television series, smaller movie roles, open-heart surgery, bouts of severe depression and, to top it all off, Parkinson's disease. Each of these stressors played a part in creating the dark, swirling despair that pressed down upon him.


Men's NetWork Bible Studyl:: Mormons: Who They Are, What They Believe
(Includes subtitles in English) The Mormon Church (aka The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) means different things to different people. From its feel-good, family-oriented TV commercials to its Grammy- and Emmy-winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir to its bicycling missionaries, the Mormon Church is high profile all the way. Founded in the early 19th century, this religious movement boasts more than 15 million members and 85,000 missionaries, ranking it in the top five of "Christian denominations" in the U.S., according to the National Council of Churches.
