December in Review

Our Heavenly Mother and Father gave us their son, receive us, speak to us through Christ, receive glory, speak to us in dreams, and we worship them.

Heavenly Mother on the Internet
This month started with a post by LovelyLauren thinking about why the "Heavenly Mother" issue isn't very high on her concerns at the moment.
Like Unto Eve posted for the Mother Fast this month.
At fMh, worthoursalt mentioned that Heavenly Mother is a very important part of her feminism.
At Mother Wheel, the connection between the ruby and the Goddess was discussed and then there was a wonderful post on the Heavenly Mother imagery in the Young Women's program medallion.

Happy New Year!

Doctrine and Covenants 18:38-40

I changed "Father" to "Parents" for this one. Have a beautiful weekend!

38 And by their desires and their works you shall know them.

39 And when you have found them you shall show these things unto them.

40 And you shall fall down and worship the Parents in my name.

Matthew 2:11-12

Being post-Christmas, I thought I'd share a post-Christmas scripture today. I added the Goddess.

11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

12 And being warned of Goddess and God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

O Come All Ye Faithful

Happy Christmas, everyone! This was our closing hymn today and I changed, "Father" to "Parents" and I pluralized "God" but if you are thinking of Christ as "God" in this song, you don't need to do that.

1. Oh, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
Oh, come ye, oh come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him,
Born the King of angels;

2. Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation;
Sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above!
Glory to Gods,
Glory in the highest;

3. Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv’n.
Son of the Parents,
Now in flesh appearing;

Oh, come, let us adore him;
Oh, come, let us adore him;
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ, the Lord.

Galatians 4:4

I added the Goddess to this one. Getting ready for Christmas!

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, Goddess and God sent forth their Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains

This was our opening hymn today in sacrament. I made "men" inclusive by changing it to "all" and I added the Goddess. You have to do some syllable-moving in the chorus, but it's doable. I like it!

1. Far, far away on Judea’s plains,
Shepherds of old heard the joyous strains:

2. Sweet are these strains of redeeming love,
Message of mercy from heav’n above:

3. Lords, with the angels we too would rejoice;
Help us to sing with the heart and voice:

4. Hasten the time when, from ev’ry clime,
All shall unite in the strains sublime:

Glory to God, Glory to Goddess,
Glory to God and Godess;
Peace on earth, goodwill to all;
Peace on earth, goodwill to all!

Hebrews 1:1-2

Sorry for my absence. We went out of town for my birthday and I didn't have any posts scheduled ahead of time! I hope everyone is having a beautiful December!

In this one, I changed "fathers" to "parents" and added the Goddess.

1 God and Goddess, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the parents by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by their Son, whom they hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also they made the worlds;

Ether 5:5

Changed "Father" to "Parents" and included the Goddess

5 And if it so be that they repent and come unto the Parents in the name of Jesus, they shall be received into the kingdom of Goddess and God.

Isaiah 7:13-14

And suddenly the Christmas season is upon us! Because, this scripture is about Christ's birth, I added Bathsheba to the "house of David" because according to the gospel of Matthew, it is through her that Christ is born. You can include other wives, Michal, Ahinoam, Abigail, Maachah, Haggith, Abital, or Eglah if you like. And as always, I added the Lady to the scripture.

13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David and Bathsheba; Is it a small thing for you to weary people, but will ye weary my God and Goddess also?

14 Therefore the Lord and Lady themselves shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
