What is a devotional?
BYU’s first principal, Karl G. Maeser, (yes, the Maeser building was named after him) was committed to following Brigham Young’s counsel to teach...
“NEITHER THE ALPHABET NOR THE MULTIPLICATION TABLES WITHOUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD.”
To cultivate a religious spirit, Maeser organized daily devotionals. Today we have weekly devotionals where a speaker shares a Gospel-based message. Each devotional begins with a musical number and a prayer.
