The Jordan River Utah Temple Will Not Be Rededicated This Year

Hello. This is just a brief temple construction progress update. I have before mentioned on this blog and at other times that I was glad to hear of the three additional temple dedications that were recently announced, but that I had also hoped the Jordan River Utah Temple renovation would be completed by the end of this year. A kind comment pointed out that rededications can be scheduled to be held between already-scheduled dedications, and that there was still a chance that we could see such an event for Jordan River before the end of the year. That being said, I had thus been convinced it could still happen until I read the latest on the LDS Church Temples website. The information there indicates that the Jordan River renovation will likely not be finished until the early or middle part of next year, around the same time as the renovations are expected to be completed on the Frankfurt Germany temple. So. the question that has been a topic of discussion for quite a while now has been settled. Aside from any other groundbreakings that may be announced, there will be no other temple-related events this year. There is a possibility that we might see the announcement of several temples this year, but that will be a topic for another post. For now, we do have the confirmation that we've been waiting for. That does it for this post. Comments continue to be welcome and appreciated.
