Meet Together Oft: Why We Go To Church
"And the church did meet together oft, to fast and to pray, and to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls." This is Moroni's description of the church of God. We emulate this description as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a blessing to gather together. This blessing has become even more pronounced when world events have kept us from meeting together oft. We hope your families will be blessed and strengthened this week by this lesson.

You will need an egg for each person who will be present for the lesson. You will also need a small bowl, a flat surface (such as a table top or some glass plates), and some table salt!
Pass out one egg to each person in attendance and invite everyone to try to balance the egg so that it stands upright on the table. Allow everyone to attempt this for a minute or two.
Now sprinkle a pinch of salt (no more than ¼ teaspoon) on the table surface and invite everyone to try to balance the egg upright in the salt. (This will take a little bit of effort, but it is possible to balance the egg in the salt!)
If you have enough salt, place about 1 cup of salt into the small bowl. Now place the bowl of salt on the table and ask for a volunteer to stand the egg up in the salt. (This should be very easy!)
After you have concluded the activity, ask the following questions:
1) When there was no salt, were you able to balance the egg? (No.)
