What’s happening? Moroni and Pahoran take back Nephihah.
Why does it matter? As Moroni and Pahoran show us, they are stronger united.
Between the lines: Peace can come when people are rallied around righteous causes.
Quote of the day: ‘”Grounded in the faith of Jesus Christ, Captain Moroni defended his people, their rights, and their religion. He sustained the Nephite tradition to never give offense and to raise the sword only against aggressive enemies after having approached the Lord in fervent prayer for his help and guidance. Under such gospel-principled leadership, the Nephites experienced happiness. His example resonated with his son Moronihah and the rising generation who ‘did pray unto the Lord their God continually,’ remembering ‘how great things the Lord had done for them . . . [delivering] them out of the hands of their enemies.'” ~ R. Jenkins, 2009, “Peaceable Followers of Christ” in Days of War and Contention
