The three-hour block of church meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday. Dieter Uchtdorf, the second counselor in the First Presidency of the LDS church, will lead the dedication.Tens of thousands of people visited the Meridian temple during its three-week open house, according to a press release from the church. The temple tours were open to the general public. After the dedication, the temple will only be open to Mormons who are in good standing with the church.“We feel this new temple will be a great asset not only to members of the Church but also to the people of Meridian and the surrounding communities, who will benefit from the peace and beauty a temple brings,” stated Craig Rasmussen, Idaho spokesman for the church. “Temples are where members participate in the most meaningful and significant rites of our religion — where we make and renew promises to God and to our families.”The temples are not used for Sunday worship, but rather for sacred ceremonies, such as marriage and baptism for the dead, as well as prayer and teachings on scripture.The Meridian temple, at 7345 N. Linder Road, is the fifth in Idaho.
