As you know I, Yair Shalev share my travel experience in my loving city in simple I am traveler and blogger both. Hopefully you are enjoying my blog. In previous entry I explained my love for Gateway Arch. Today blog entry by Yair Shalev outlines Independence Temple.
The Temple in Independence, Missouri, is a house of worship and education “dedicated to the pursuit of peace”. It dominates the skyline ofIndependence, Missouri, USA, and has become the focal point of the headquarters of the Community of Christ (formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). The temple was built by the Community of Christ in response to a revelation presented to their 1984 World Conference by then church prophet-president Wallace B. Smith. This revelation culminated instructions shared over the course of more than 150 years by prior prophet-presidents recognized by the Community of Christ. Groundbreaking for the temple took place Friday 6 April 1990, and the completed structure was dedicated on Sunday 17 April 1994.
