Philadelphia Temple Dedicated

Today the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania temple was dedicated by Pres. Eyring. There are many other temples that have been or soon will be dedicated this year. It’s an exciting time to be a Latter-day Saint.

  1. Yes, right in downtown – that was the plan all along. (The site changed along the way.) And not just close to transit, but right off a freeway as well.

  2. I think it would be awesome for someone to put together a book series regarding vacations with a focus on temples. For example, the New York, DC, and Philadelphia temples are not geographically close, per se, but there are great and relatively inexpensive options for getting between the cities, and cars are optional for getting to the temples and key tourist destinations.

    At the DC temple visitor’s center they have a cut-away model of the temple, so those who want to can see the different spaces. I think it would be lovely for the Philadelphia temple welcoming center to have a similar model, as the welcoming center is envisioned to be the place where family members who can’t attend weddings in the temple would wait. I know my sister expressed that her mother-in-law was impressed by the temple tour, and seeing the beautiful location where her grand-daughter may choose to be married one day was a comfort, even though the mother-in-law would not be able to attend such a temple wedding were it to happen today.
