Though my knowledge of the history of mormonism is still, alas, quite sketchy, I think it is fair to say that Moroni’s appearance to Joseph Smith, on September 21, 1823 definitely got the ball rolling.

Mormonism intrigues me. I have had the pleasure of knowing ‘quite’ a few — including the Marriott family. I used to make a point of visiting the spectacular Mormon temples — and have been to the Mothership in Salt Lake City. In the 1980s when I used to come over from the UK to consult with ITT Courier in Tempe, Arizona I stumbled upon the Mormon Temple in Mesa, AZ (which was like next door). I was struck by it splendor and many an evening, before going to dinner, I would go and walk around the absolutely gorgeous grounds with a ton of petrified trees. Here is a contemporary picture. It wasn’t as grand 30-years ago.
