I want to go on record as saying that I truly and deeply hated the new movies. Between the acting , the voices and some of the set designs I just  cringed and grit my teeth when I went through them. That being said I also want to State emphatically that I love this new format. I think they actually fixed some of the voice overs to make the characters sound better.

Went this morning for the first time since the recent changes.  Here are my impressions.

Video: The illustrations and photos during the creation narrative are stunning. The transitions beautifully portray spiritual and physical creation. I really like the use of still photography vs. video for the garden narrative. For me, it helps to moves the focus from drama to symbolism. Plus, I imagine it makes localization for a hundred languages much easier.

Audio: Loved the music. Language has become much more inclusive and will be easier to standardize across translations. The inclusion of Moses 5 is absolutely inspired and indescribably moving at the end of the narrative.

Probably because of recent deaths in my extended family, I had an overwhelming impression, almost a vision, of God's children returning home when the company headed to the veil.

I love the changes.

The nerdy side of me was also very happy to hear it finally properly pronounced Elo-heem :)

Roper, don't you think you were a bit too specific in describing when the ask in the beginning the changes not to be discussed?

Cook, I suspect you're referring to my examples of specific words. While I don't feel I have revealed anything I have covenanted not to reveal, I have removed them.

I hate when this happens. I didn't read this thread quick enough, and am left wondering what Roper wrote that I missed.  :-\

More new Temple policy changes.

Women with young dependents are now permitted to be ordinance workers.

It's interesting always to hear about these changes when they have been the norm in some parts of the world. With a permission. Here in Finland we have always had slso young mothers serving as ordinance workers. When the temple was opened, we were also asked. We told no. DH was at the time a bishop, and we had three children, oldest had just turned 4, youngest was about 8 months. The main reason for no though was that with that limited time, when we did go to the temple, I wanted to do the ordinances on behalf of my own andectors.

The temple would not operate if also mothers of young children would not be allowed to serve in all capacities. Same with men, no chance of calling someone to do just one thing, once called, you do everything (except sealings of course).

Glad they've seen it as a good system.
