Israel, Israel, God Is Calling

Israel, Israel, God Is Calling
This is a wonderful talk by Elder Holland in Jan 2012.

He talks of one of the differences in our time from all other previous dispensations. We are not going to flee anymore like Abraham, Moses, Lehi or Joseph Smith have done.  We are going to stand and defend Zion. And build it up where we are.

He also speak of three incidents and lessons they can teach us.

- Lesson 1: Never “Check Your Religion at the Door” (Booing an LDS basketball player)
- Lesson 2: Show Compassion, but Be Loyal to the Commandments (The tattooed lady)
- Lesson 3: Use Gospel Values to Benefit Communities and Countries (Drug addicted mother)
