Day 3 #LightTheWorld: Wherefore it is Lawful to Do Well on the Sabbath Days

Cleveland Stake Young Single Adults shared their talents on the Sabbath with aged care residents.

News Release

       As the Light the World campaign gets into full swing, Day 3 focuses on observance of the Sabbath Day.                             

Young single adults (YSA) of the Brisbane Australia Cleveland Stake (Diocese) recently shared their musical talents with residents of aged care facilities in their area as part of their Sabbath day observanc. Recognising that music is an excellent way to communicate spiritually with others, especially as a lead in to the Christmas season, these young people are great ambassadors for their faith.

Under the direction of their stake leaders, the YSA decided that the Sabbath day was an excellent time to visit and perform for live-in residents at Buckingham Gardens in Alexandra Hills. The choir was warmly welcomed by the 50 residents in the Church of Christ residential facility including Sister Elizabeth Fell, the widowed mother of Cleveland Stake President Paul Fell.  

The Cleveland YSA are fulfilling the recent counsel of President Thomas S. Monson to members worldwide, ‘to find someone who is having a hard time or is ill or lonely, and do something for him or her today’. (Ensign, October 2017, p.80)

Harriet Nicholson, one of the YSA representatives involved, commented, ‘sharing our musical talents on the Sabbath day is a great way to become closer to the Saviour and demonstrate our love for those who are restricted by age or illness’.

God designated the Sabbath as a day of rest, but that doesn’t mean we should be idle from this day. Instead. We should use our time and talents to bless others. Click on the video below to watch Day 3.
