Martin’s Punishment

Martin Harris
After Martin Harris lost the first 116 pages of the Book of Mormon translation he also lost the privilege to act as Joseph’s scribe. According to Lucy Mack Smith, what else did Martin Harris lose?
a.                  2/3 of his wheat was blighted
b.                  His wife
c.                   His farm animals all died
d.                  His membership in the Church
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   That children receive the sacrament twice on Sundays
During the afternoon meeting, ward leaders should place the boys and girls next to their Sunday School teachers in a special section of the meeting hall. Water should be made available for their refreshment and their seats made “very comfortable, so that the children will not be uneasy.” Moreover, ward officers were to see that the youth received the sacrament during both the morning and afternoon services.

“Circular of the First Presidency . . . to All the Officers and members of the Church,” 11 July 1877.
