Ironically, the 2016-2017 Season tickets for the Eccles Theater are now on sale. Some of the shows include: Dirty Dancing, Kinky Boots and the less then flattering Broadway show, The Book of Mormon: the musical. So interesting that that the Church would donated tithing money to a venue that would play such shows instead of building homeless shelters and food kitchens. One day I hope to get an explanation on why the Church spends the widows mite on such things.
I was in Cedar City this past weekend and drove by the new LDS Temple that is being built. (See below on the left). The Church does a great job in finding the most exclusive areas and high end residential areas to build their Temples.
