One afternoon several years ago, Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his father visited the great cathedral at Chartres near Paris. An expert on the cathedral pointed out three sets of Chartres stained-glass windows and explained that they tell a story.

The first windows show Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden. The second recount the parable of the good Samaritan. And the third depict the Lord’s Second Coming.

“Taken together, these stained-glass windows can describe our eternal journey. They invite us to welcome all with room in His Inn,” said Elder Gong in a new Church Inspirational Message video released Aug. 18 titled “Room in the Inn.”

“Jesus Christ invites us to become, like Him, a good Samaritan, to make His Inn (His Church) a refuge for all from life’s bruises and storms,” he said. “We prepare for His promised Second Coming as each day we do unto ‘the least of these’ as we would unto Him. ‘The least of these’ is each of us.”
