CNN Covers The Vancouver LDS Temple In Its "Sacred Spaces" Series; Elder William R. Walker Provides The Commentary

The LDS Newsroom blog informs us that CNN has covered the Vancouver B.C. Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on its "Sacred Spaces" series. The series explores the sacred spaces of a multitude of religious faiths and denominations. The specific post is available in CNN's Belief Blog.

"Starring" in this video (if "starring" is the operative word) is Elder William R. Walker of the Seventy, who serves as the executive director of the LDS Church's Temple Department. While he discusses the significance of the temple, pictures show the various rooms therein. Video embedded below:

The Vancouver Temple was formally dedicated as the-then 132nd LDS Temple on May 2nd, 2010. You can read the text of the dedicatory prayer offered by President Thomas S. Monson HERE. A timeline of the temple's construction is provided HERE.

A complete list of all LDS Temples, both operational and under construction, is available HERE.
