Invocation: (Did not catch his name. Sorry).
Choir: “If the Savior Stood Beside Me.”
Saddened by the loss of three of our apostles. Returned to their heavenly home. Grateful for this examples. Heartfelt welcome to our new apostles. Well qualified to fill the positions to what they have been called.
“Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.”
“Be thou an example of the believers in word and in conversation.”
The second scriptures explains how we can accomplish the first. Our lives will shine for others to see if we do so.
1)Be a good example in word and in conversation. Avoid profanity. Avoid coarse comments. Let us speak to others with love and respect, ever keeping our language clean and avoiding comments that would wound and offend.
2)Charity. Pure love of Christ.
3)Example in spirit. Kindness and good will. A pure and loving spirit.
4)Faith. Faith and doubt cannot exist in one mind at the same time.
5)Be pure. Our bodies are a temple, and our minds should be kept free from things that would pollute. Purity will bring peace of mind.
Latter-day Saints will be different. We will stand out as we make choices regarding morality, choices that adhere to Gospel standards.
With help from our Heavenly Father, we can regain the light that will illuminate our path.
(President Monson gave a great testimony at the end of this talk, but appeared very weak at the end).
