A nice, commemorative Family Home Evening™ might be appropriate. :mrgreen:

I have an ancestor who sold moonshine to the mafia during prohibition. :D

In light of this, when was the temple recommend interview changed to prohibit alcohol? It was around this time since Heber Grant was the prophet who instituted this change. I would love to have the text of the revelation where this was spelled out, but I'm pretty sure it was a policy that he put in place firmly and it turned into doctrine over the next few decades. D&C 89 actually allows "mild barley drinks" which modern TBMs would wrongly interpret as "Postum". I am looking for more information on how this came about.

This is the time to reflect on the arduous journeys of the Brethren who took the basement tunnel over to the Alta Club during prohibition.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.
