Breaking Down the Walls: Mormons Join Interfaith Effort to Feed Hungry at Thanksgiving (LDS Newsroom) (November 28, 2013)
The parking lot of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church Tuesday morning (just a stone’s throw from Monterey) is a scene of diversity and unity: Baptists, Pentecostals, Mormons and other believers form relay lines 20 people deep that stretch into the church to quickly distribute 1,500 bags of food to needy families who have come by in hopes of a nice Thanksgiving meal.

Leaders Say 2014 Primary Theme Teaches "Families Are Forever" (Church News and Events) (November 28, 2013)
At a time when the family is under fire, the Church's Primary general presidency is hoping children will understand that “Families Are Forever.” That simple truth is the theme of 2014 Outline for Sharing Time. It is based on the scripture, “And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers” (Malachi 4:6). Children will be blessed by learning that families are forever, said Sister Rosemary M. Wixom, Primary general president. “This is God’s plan and His truth and His Church.”

St. George LDS Temple grounds come to life day after Thanksgiving (St George News - Utah) (November 28, 2013)
Hundreds of locals have been busy stringing lights on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints St. George Temple grounds in preparation for the Lighting Ceremony to be held Friday at 5:30 p.m. This yearly tradition draws the community together to light up the grounds in celebration of the birth of the “Light of the World.” The ceremony will include a 30-minute outdoor program with a speaker, community singing and music by the Tuacahn High School Madrigals which will lead up to the flipping of a switch to illuminate the St. George Temple grounds with hundreds of thousands of lights.

20 little-known facts about the Mormon Angel Moroni statue (Deseret News - Utah) (November 28, 2013)
Did you know that one of the heaviest Angel Moroni statues weighs 4,000 pounds, that one statue was colored white or that the statue usually faces east? With temples all over the world, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has adorned the skyline with angel statues for 167 years, ever since the Nauvoo Temple was dedicated in 1846. The Nauvoo Temple, however, did not feature the same type of statue LDS Church members are familiar with today.

Brylee's wings: An intimate account of one little girl's struggle to survive (Deseret News - Utah) (November 28, 2013)
The room was still, a quiet moment after the whirlwind that began with the rhythmic thumping of an MRI, the rustling of doctor's notes and admittance papers, and the hiss of the oxygen tube. Lara Olson clung to her daughter, rocked her gently and began to cry. "I don't want you to leave me," she said in quiet whisper. Brylee Olson glanced up at her mother from cradled arms, her large blue eyes glassy, her voice unable to pass from paralyzed vocal cords. The muscles in her face were also stilled, leaving her unable to comfort her grieving mother. Brylee reached for her mother's hand.

The Saratov Approach (Weekly News Journal - Idaho) (November 28, 2013)
Two 20-year-old Mormon missionaries hoped to preach their gospel at a Russian investigator’s home, but instead soon found themselves beaten, tied to a furnace and wondering if they’d live to tell the tale. And they did. And it’s being told in the movie “The Saratov Approach” now playing at the Century Cinema. One of the missionaries, Andrew Propst met with movie goers at the cinemas to discuss the event that changed his life. “We were approached by a guy who asked us to come over and talk to him about the church. When we went to his house, he and another kidnapper attacked us with bats and pointed guns in our faces,” said Propst, now of Boise, who with his missionary companion, Travis Tuttle, of Gilbert, Arizona, spent five days blindfolded, handcuffed and shackled to a heater.

Jabari Parker and Duke's early-season scare (Indy Week - North Carolina) (November 28, 2013)
Five minutes into the second half of Duke's weird 91–90 win last Sunday over the 1-4 Catamounts of the University of Vermont, Blue Devil freshman Jabari Parker, the 6-foot-8, 235-pound future NBA All-Star, stole the ball from a green-clad guard named Candon Rusin, loped down court and dunked delicately with two hands, as if dropping a bomb down a foxhole. The crowd at Cameron Indoor Stadium went nuts. Vermont called a timeout. The score was 61–49, Duke.
