Temple Bookends

When we went to the Nauvoo Pageant last summer, I was moved to hear Pres. Hinckley's voice at the end of it.  This is what he said, "Today, facing west, on the high bluff overlooking the city of Nauvoo, thence across the Mississippi, and over the plains of Iowa, there stands Joseph’s temple, a magnificent house of God. Here in theSalt Lake Valley, facing east to that beautiful temple in Nauvoo, stands Brigham’s temple, the Salt Lake Temple. They look toward one another as bookends between which there are volumes that speak of the suffering, the sorrow, the sacrifice, even the deaths of thousands who made the long journey from the Mississippi River to the valley of the Great Salt Lake."

The Nauvoo Mercantile & Gallery offers this framed version with pictures of the temples.
