The Temple is...

...a place of learning.
We do not talk about the sacred ordinances of the temple.
However, it is okay to quote what the Prophets, Apostles, and General Authorities have had printed in books about the temple and temple work.  I will share some of these quotes in our blog from time to time.
Here we are on October 12, 2011, the evening of our first day at the Seminar for New Temple Presidents in Salt Lake City.

The Temple is the Lord's University...
"The temple endowment relates the story of man's eternal journey;
sets the conditions upon which progress in the eternal worlds depends; requires covenants or agreements of those participating to accept and use the laws of progress; gives tests by which our willingness and fitness for righteousness may be known, and finally points out the ultimate destiny of those who love truth and live by it." -- Elder John A. Widstoe
