Church News: About the cover

The Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple is illuminated against the silhouetted Wasatch Mountains Sunday, Oct. 13, as the first members of the temple district's 44 stakes gather before the break of day to participate in the dedication of the Church's 49th temple. Temple-goers stood in lines that wound around the sidewalks before doubling back to the temple. Others participated by watching closed-circuit televised proceedings in overflow areas. In inset photo, President Gordon B. Hinckley and his counselors, President Thomas S. Monson and President James E. Faust, pose for photo outside the temple.
