Salt Lake City is the capital and most populous municipality in the state of Utah, with about 1.2 million residents in its metropolitan area. It was founded in 1847 by followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who sought to escape persecution they experienced living in the east. As shown in this Overview, the city has a distinct north-south east-west grid system, which was laid out by church leader Brigham Young using what was called the "Plat of Zion" or the "Mormon Grid." /// Created by @eli_anderson_, source imagery: @nearmap
BYU has unveiled new Nike uniforms for their game against Washington on Saturday.
Per @byufootball : “The helmet design, created only for the throwback game, will include a single royal blue center stripe and gray facemask similar to styles used in the 1950s and 60s.
One of the best books I've read this year.
To all my Mormon friends, this is a must read!
No, your religion is not gonna get bashed, but it will take a caring upproach to address many issues and inconsistencies that your prophets and leaders have been ignoring and hiding away from the light for a long time since the conception of the movement, and will give you an opportunity for an honest reflection that is based on the writings from your own top leaders and influencers.
At the of it all, you will realise that Christ is Supreeme and no deceiving man-made religion, such as Mormonism is, will stand. I pray that you you are teachable and have the humility to recieve it, for Christ's Glory. #mormonism#mormon#bookofmormon#UnveilingMormonism#brighamyoung#josephsmith

Led by religious leader Brigham Young, it was on this day in 1846 that the first Mormons began a long westward exodus from Nauvoo, Il., to Utah. Of course, we have a map of that! This pictorial map shows the Mormon Trail with depictions of various important Mormon events, such as the mustering of the Mormon battalion. The map also includes many other notable western trails, such as the Oregon trail, the pony express trail, the Lewis & Clark trail, and the trail taken by most 49ers.
“Priesthood was the Principle by which all beings have become Gods, or will become Gods, they must follow the principles of government as revealed in the Priesthood.” — Brigham Young (Complete Discourses of Brigham Young <25 March 1855> page 915)
