Salt Lake City Temple
As some of you may or may not know, the HBO show Big Love has aired an episode featuring sacred religious ceremonies in the temple that we keep very sacred and dear to us. The temple is a place where we strive to remain wholesome and worthy to enter into it's doors. People have taken the wear and symbolism out of context and consider us Mormons as peculiar and cultish because of these, yet they seem to forget that many religions and even secular events (such as a high school/college graduation...) wear ceremonious clothing and rituals.
I can honestly say, that the temple is one of my favorite places. I was married to my sweetheart for time and all eternity in the temple and have been blessed to be able to attend many times since. It is a place of refuge, of peace, of love, and a place where we go to worship our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
