General Conference

If you’ve been reading this blog much, you’ve probably heard us raving about how great it is to have a modern-day living prophet. We think it’s pretty cool. It’s the connection to God that sets our religion apart.

Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's mouthpiece on earth today.You too can learn what all the hullabaloo is about: this weekend is the semiannual, world-wide broadcast of the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over the course of two days, our beloved prophet, Thomas S. Monson (along with his two counselors and the twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ) will gives us the guidance that the Lord wants us to receive about issues that matter to us,today.

Sad that you missed Moses’ great sermons? Disappointed that the preaching days of Peter, James, and John are through? Those eras are past and gone, but there is revelation now and you can take advantage of this opportunity this Saturday and Sunday!

If you live near Utah, tune your TV or radio to KSL. Satellite and cable stations generally carry the BYU channel, and you can always watch live online in streaming video. (Streaming audio is also available in just about any language you like). If you’re in Salt Lake City on either day, you can also try to get tickets to the conference center. They are always free, so you’ll need to act fast to find some. Contact your local missionaries, or the sisters on temple square.

The schedule is as follows (Mountain Daylight Time):
Saturday October 4, 2008
10 am – noon ~ First session
2 pm – 4 pm ~ Second session

Sunday October 5, 2008
10 am – noon ~ Third session
2 pm – 4 pm ~ Fourth session

And please, share with us what you thought of it.

    I hope that anyone who has the opportunity to attend a session (or all sessions) of General Conference will take the opportunity. Sometimes it is hard for us to explain what it is like to listen to a Prophet’s voice, so if you are at all curious, I too would like to encourage you to go.

    If you do not live in Utah, you can attend General Conference at any LDS meetinghouse in your city. Most people do dress up to go, but it is not required to attend.

    Truly President Monson is the Lord’s Prophet on the earth today. You will be blessed if you take the time to listen to what he has to say.

    I think it should be pointed out that the Sunday morning session starts at 10 am, not 1 am. It’s not 11 hours long.
    I am so excited for this. It’s more than people speaking to the world, which they are. But if you take the effort to listen well, you may find that these men are speaking to you, answering your questions and helping with your problems.
    And it is way easier to understand than Isaiah.

    Love this post. We look to forward to General Conference so much that it’s hard to put into words our anticipation or how blessed I feel to be able have such a spiritual feast for two full days. But this post makes me even more excited. Can’t wait!
