This is followed by Walter E. A. Van Beck and "The Temple and the Sacred: Dutch Temple Experiences," which contains the specific experiences in the temple of those living in the Netherlands and how their culture has influenced their interpretation of the entire temple experience. The issue also contains several personal voices, some beautiful works of poetry, and an inspired sermon on different types of faith and how those without life changing spiritual experiences can still live a life of faith and conviction.
