Elder James R. Rasband of the Seventy
Understanding the Restorative Power of the Savior’s Atoning Sacrifice
Elder Rasband will explore how the faith to forgive even grievous harms can be increased if we understand that the Savior’s atonement promises restitution. Likewise, the faith to trust in the remission of our own sins is increased when we understand that the Savior’s atoning sacrifice heals others from our mistakes.
