Newsweek Spotlights the LDS Church

This year marks the 200th birthday of Church Founder Joseph Smith. The article explores Smith’s life, and the growing religion he founded.

The Mormon Temple Square in Salt Lake City is one of the most popular tourist spots in Utah. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir gives free public performances at Temple Square.

Special events will be held at Church Headquarters this fall and winter to commemorate Smith's birthday. They will be open to the general public. Watch the Church website for details.
