April General Conference #genconf

In a few minutes, we will have the chance to participate in General Conference. I almost miss the days when we would live-blog conference. I have fond memories of sitting in darkened chapels, typing away at my computer keyboard, giving you my synopsis of what I was taking away from the session.

But now any of us with modern devices can listen and watch live from whatever corner of the world we are in. Just go to ChurchofJesusChrist.org and click on the Conference stream image (above). And if we can’t participate to the live stream, we can access recordings of the live stream immediately afterwards.

May you have a wonderful Conference weekend and a Holy Easter Sunday!

  1. I particularly enjoyed Sister Jones’s comments. While speaking of children, Sister Jones related a story of basic training and later of battle where the despised teaching proved life threatening. “Eternity is the wrong thing to be wrong about.” Amen.

  2. I also enjoyed Elder Stevenson’s discussion of the rabbit effect, the finding that loving care improves health outcomes.

  3. Very cool to hear of so many new temples to be built! Of the many announced, I am certain the folks in Elko are vey excited, as Elko is far from both Reno and Tooele. I’m sure the same relief of having a local temple is being felt in the other locations.

  4. 20 temples! Wowser.

  5. Thanks, Meg.

    I again appreciate the statements against racism. I thought Sunday morning’s global talks were awesome. I loved that we saw and heard from leaders from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania. Hopefully, it will show members who tend towards racism that the Lord’s Church has leaders of all races and nationalities.

    Perhaps the only political talk was from Pres Oaks, regarding the inspired Constitution. I like how he denoted that there is no one correct party, or one that a person would agree 100 percent with. We are to consider what principles are most important to us, and prayerfully select candidates and platforms that most closely match our highest priorities. Also, the Constitution is designed to “maximize freedom.” He condemned violence – which would include both Antifa riots and the alt right attacks on the Capitol. Hopefully, with his teachings, we can find unity among members and stop thinking evil of those who vote differently than we do.
