LDS PRAXIS: Integrating Gospel Teachings with Social Action

This session will demonstrate how many Latter-day Saints are changing the world by fusing core gospel principles with personal acts of humanitarian service. Values such as stewardship, consecration, and sacrifice are having global impacts and empowering the poor. Individuals, families, neighbors, church groups, and businesses are creating new social-purpose ventures to bless those who suffer and build self-reliance. In the wake of the tragedies of 11 September 2001 and during these troubled times of war and a struggling economy, many of us strongly desire to become involved in life-affirming projects. What exactly can we do? Where should we begin?
