Instructions for Teachings for Our Time
The following instructions for fourth-Sunday Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society lessons replace those in Information for Priesthood and Auxiliary Leaders on Curriculum, 2005 through 2008 and in the May 2004 Liahona and Ensign .
Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society meetings on the fourth Sunday of each month will continue to be devoted to Teachings for Our Time.
Effective November 2004, all Teachings for Our Time lessons will be taught from talks in the most recent general conference issue of the Liahona or Ensign. These issues are published each May and November. The talks are also available online (in many languages) at www.lds.org.
Each lesson can be prepared from one or more talks. Stake and district presidents may choose which talks should be used, or they may assign this responsibility to bishops and branch presidents. These priesthood leaders should stress the value of having the Melchizedek Priesthood brethren and the Relief Society sisters study the same talks on the same Sundays. Teachers should seek counsel from their leaders regarding any special emphasis.
Those attending fourth-Sunday lessons are encouraged to study and bring to class the latest general conference issue of the magazine. Ward and branch leaders should ensure that all members have access to the Church magazines.
