One of my responsibilities at church is to encourage regular temple attendance. Last month I decided to start the Fun Temple Facts (TM) email series, in which a few days before ward temple day, I send out a multiple choice question relating to the temple, with a subsequent answer. I thought it would be fun to share more widely.
After working all day in the Nauvoo Temple, the early Saints liked to:
- a) Square dance in the upper rooms of the temple.
b) Have Mississippi River catfish dinner (though all were invited, not just the High Priests and spouses) .
c) Go over to Bishop Miller’s for Refreshments.
d) Pull sticks and wrestle.
