Re: April 2020 General Conference

Welp, this session did nothing for me, but I do admit that I'm not in the target market.

There's a "new" proclamation, but it's essentially a paragraph or two out of what was once the 3rd discussion.

Shrugs.

I hear it's Easter soon. Happy Easter.

Re: April 2020 General Conference

Holland addressing covid-19 and even after we beat this, a focus on continuing the battle against hunger, school shootings, etc. On the other hand, it's understandable that people have lost a lot of faith/hope in organized religion. I'd ask, does the person that's lost hope in organized religion bea...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

I don't get anything out of the, "It's cool to get to hang out with a celeb" talks but she turned it around and brought the message back to Christ.

Ronald A. Rasband

They're really sticking with the whole, "Rah, rah our church is great and so is the prophet!" theme, aren't they. :(

Happy Easter.

Re: April 2020 General Conference

We wouldn't need another worldwide fast if the first one worked. Newsflash: this one won't work either. :twisted: On a more positive note, RMN did broaden the definition of what constitutes a fast to be less Pharasaical and more in line with what other Christians believe fasting is. FWIW the Jewish...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

I'm kinda dumbstruck. It's like a session that didn't even happen.

A logo and a fast. That's something that can be handled in an email.

In my mind there's one talk from each session:

Saturday morning: James R. Rasband
Saturday Afternoon: Gérald Caussé
Saturday night: Gong

Re: April 2020 General Conference

There you have it. Session is over. Re-splitting the hair of women having access to the PH but not holding offices in the PH - though one interpretation of the remarks (which seem to beat around the bush) is that in the future the church may be more open to women officiating in the PH under the dire...

Re: April 2020 General Conference

Good to know that there's precedent for doing solemn assemblies for the sake of anniversary celebrations. Fingers crossed.

DFU hasn't spoken yet. I believe Oaks is up next. Typically each apostle will speak at least once so I'd expect to hear from him tomorrow.

Re: April 2020 General Conference

Just so this is visible to people here... Not to create anxiety or trigger people, but I've read some speculation that tomorrow's solemn assembly (with hosanna shout) will be to canonize scripture, possibly the family proclamation. Solemn assemblies are usually only held for special occasions, canon...
