Moroni Day 2016

On or near autumnal equinox 1823, the Angel Moroni first appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith and told him about records engraved on gold plates.

On or near autumnal equinox 1827, the Angel Moroni gave Joseph a set of plates having the appearance of gold.

The value of the records contained on the gold plates far exceeded their worth as precious metal or pre-Columbian cultural artifact.

On or near autumnal equinox 2016, Book of Mormon Central will celebrate Moroni Day with a fundraising reception in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building on Temple Square. As with all images on this blog, click to enlarge.
