Kirtland is a singular place in the history of the LDS movement. The Kirtland Temple once stood as a symbol of a faith that shattered and splintered upon Joseph Smith’s death. Now it’s a powerful symbol of a shared history and language of faith rooted in multiple denominations. As a spiritual home to many, the Kirtland Temple, cared for by the Community of Christ, is remarkable in its power and the Community of Christ’s willingness to gather in all expressions of the Restoration.
