Max Molgard instructs Sons of Utah Pioneers

On March 6, Max Molgard, former LDS Tooele Utah Stake President, instructed the Settlement Canyon Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers and their wives, how the LDS Church Correlation Department looks after everything from food canning labels to General Conference talks to make sure that everything in the church is doctrinally pure, and therefore can’t be misunderstood by the public. Molgard manages a large segment within the Church Correlation Department that had its beginning in the 1800s, and has been perfected over time since then. Maybe not especially needed at its inception, the Correlation Department now fulfills a critical role within the ever expanding world wide church to keep everyone from Salt Lake to Mongolia on the same page. He mentioned that this massive undertaking is driven by the needs in the outlying developing church who don’t have near the resources of the Utah-based church. Therefore, instructional materials, programs and policies are developed in such a way that the same opportunities can be equal in New Guinea as in the United States. Molgard illustrated how the Church Education Department of Seminaries and Institutes, as well as Family Home Evening, had similar beginnings at a time when they were nice additons, but not really necessary. In today’s world they are an established Godsend for Church membership who are facing very different situations than those of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
