I'm stretching to find more pragmatic reasons for the change other than just, "we don't like Uckie because he's more liberal than we'd like."

My theory is they have had a hard time getting in touch with nibbler as 1st counselor in the first presidency...so that is holding it up.
My first action would be to reduce church to 2 hours. No one wants that. Trust me.

Re: Who is Russel M. Nelson?

I'm for keeping the system as-is (even though I'm mildly terrified of the kinds of things that may happen with Nelson/Oaks/Ballard as Prophets over the next decade or two and would personally love to skip down to Holland and Uchtdorf).

Re: FP under RMN Presidency
