Signs of the times!

I got this in my inbox this morning! I thought it was a pretty interesting read!! You can go and read the churchs statement on this as well.
I know I posted something along these lines already but I really liked this.

Temple Endowment
Posted: 13 Mar 2009 12:00 AM PDT
"The temple endowment was given by revelation. Thus, it is best understood by revelation, prayerfully sought with a sincere heart. President Brigham Young said, 'Your endowment is, to receive all those ordinances in the house of the Lord, which are necessary for you, after you have departed this life, to enable you to walk back to the presence of the Father, . . . and gain your eternal exaltation' (Discourses of Brigham Young, sel. John A. Widtsoe [1941], 416)." __________________________________________________ SPECIAL MESSAGE: Church Statement on "Big Love" Visit the Newsroom to read the Church’s official statement on an upcoming episode of HBO’s Big Love that is said to depict temple ceremonies.

When I read the church's statement I was again impressed by their tact and grace in handling the matter.
