Chapter 25, Sealing

While we lived in Dallas, Texas, I had the opportunity to serve as a bishop. Shortly after a new family had moved into the ward, I received a letter from the head of the Temple Department for the Church.

The Father of the new family had written to the Brethren, requesting a cancellation of sealing from his previous wife.

My instructions in the letter were to inform him that a cancellation for him wasn’t necessary. Further, that “Temple sealings are merely promises of blessings to come, and no one will ever be forced to spend eternity with someone they don’t want to be with anyway.”

I passed that information on to him.
