  1. Something is coming, I think. The possibilities include:
    1. Calling new apostles.
    2. Making more changes to the first presidency.
    3. A major policy announcement
    4. A significant discourse similar to a conference talk.
    More remotely possible could be a change in succession.
    Since I have thrown out the first two above I will make a guess of Bishop Causse being called as one apostle.
    A change in the first presidency might be releasing President Eyring and calling a younger apostle, or just adding a 3rd counselor.

  2. A more realistic expectation, I believe, is simply an announcement of the new First Presidency, whether or not it includes new counselors. Anything else would be a bonus. If members (and non-members) expect more or too much, such as what eloso is submitting, they are bound to be disappointed. My suggestion: Don’t overthink it.

    The new apostles will be made known, submitted to the body of the Church, and sustained in the next General Conference.

  3. I don’t expect any announcements beyond the counselors in the presidency. We’re close enough to the next conference that it’s not a big deal to wait until then to fill the QotT back out. I wonder more if Nelson will take questions, and if any of those questions will be traps to see if he’ll diss Monson’s “legacy of intolerance”.

  4. When Pres. Monson was set a part as President of the Church 10 years ago, they made the announcement, there was some explanation/teaching of doctrine about how a new president is chosen, how councilors are chosen, and then they took questions of the new First Presidency. I remember it was a lot of questions. And there might be more than just the Utah press there. I expect there will be some national press for this Q&A time.

    I agree with Tiger, let’s not over think or speculate, but just be thankful that there is a clear pattern to follow and that the Lord is fully in charge of His church. I remember in 2005 when Pope John Paul II died and then they chose a new pope. It was such a production with all the people in St. Peter’s Sq and waiting for the smoke to poof out of the chimney. I much prefer this to that.
