2. The office of Teacher were the guys who TAUGHT their congregations… like pastors or preachers. The elders brought people into the church and the teachers taught them. Sidney Rigdon used the analogy of the elders being stone cutters and the teachers being polishers of the stones, or something like that.
3. The FP were supposed to be the first ones in the building for a conference so they could greet everyone walking in and help them find their seats.
