The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began a campaign called “Share #HisDay.”to help us, as members, remind the world what the Lord’s day is all about, according to lds.org.
The invitation is simple; share on social media what you do to keep your Sabbath day holy. Since then, social media has been filled with worldwide members of the Church sharing pictures, videos, messages and ideas of what they do to keep their Sunday centered on Jesus Christ.
Some BYU-Idaho students shared what they do here on campus to keep their Sabbath day holy.
Philip Nelson, a freshman studying plant and wildlife ecology, said on Sunday he focuses on his Church calling as an elders quorum president by not only attending meetings, but by reaching out and helping those in his quorum.
“Personally, I love the Sabbath day,” Nelson said. “I love the opportunity that we have to remember and recognize our Savior and what He did for us, to make that personal sacrifice to keep it holy and show our faith and appreciation for Him.”
Sandra Okpebri, a freshman studying nursing, said she likes to spend time with her family on Sundays.
“I hang out with my brother,” Okpebri said. “We cook and sit down and talk, he is the only family I have here so that is what we do on Sunday.”
Mike Plotkin, a freshman studying mechanical engineering, said in his apartment complex they have groups that get together on Sundays.
“Those groups are like a little family,” Plotkin said. “We have dinner together and we talk. It is a fun little way to stay focused on Christ.”
Bailey Roquemore, a junior studying exercise physiology, said she likes to take time on Sundays to do what usually she doesn’t have time to do during the week.
“I like to take more time to do better scripture study, do my visiting teaching and my calling, because I feel that I’m doing something worthwhile on Sunday,” Roquemore said.
