I enjoyed General Conference this year–so many excellent contributions and inspiring moments. For me, though, I think the biggest “wow” came from the Priesthood session. Maybe it was because there were fewer distractions and I was more focused (what, who said anything about Twitter?), but I also think that it was unusual among Priesthood sessions for the concentrated power and depth in what the various speakers expressed. Anyone struggling with the Church or questioning the motives and hearts of those at the top should have been there, and should carefully listen to those messages now that they are available at LDS.org.
This really is a Church founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the objective of bringing souls to God and making the lives of others better, even infinitely better in end. We have our warts, now and throughout history, but the driving force behind the Church is not a mortal scheme or business plan concocted by men. The people who spoke to us last week were not marketers or politicians trying to manipulate and deceive, but men of God trying to serve and bless us. Well, that’s my take. Listen to conference yourself and you decide. Awesome stuff.
