The theme of the 2015 Campus Education Week, August 17–21, 2015, is “Lay Hold upon the Hope Set before Us: Which Hope We Have as an Anchor of the Soul” from Hebrews 6:18-19.
According to the class program, “In these trying times, it brings great comfort to anchor ourselves to Christ and feel the hope that His Atonement provides. President Boyd K. Packer taught, ‘As we move into the future with quiet confidence, His Spirit will be with us. There is no end to His power to bless and direct the lives of those who seek truth and righteousness’ (“The Reason for Our Hope,” October 2014 general conference).”
BYU Campus Education Week, which first began in 1922, is now one of the largest continuing education programs of its type offering more than 1,000 classes on education, religion, marriage and family, the arts, history, genealogy, communication, and much more. Classes are designed primarily for adults, although anyone age 14 and older is welcome to attend. The more than 200 presenters are faculty from Brigham Young University, instructors from Seminaries and Institutes of Religion, and other experts in their fields.

I had to go check the progress on the Provo City Center Temple.
The Provo City Center Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) under construction on the same site as the former Provo Tabernacle in Provo, Utah. The temple utilizes much of the external shell of the tabernacle, which was damaged in a fire in 2010.
My favorite Mount Timpanogos (sometimes informally referred to as Timp, is the second highest mountain in Utah‘s Wasatch Range.) could hardly be seen due to all the smoke in the air from the California forest fires.
