And so the work moves on…


It really is one of the beautiful things about the Church… a change in the First Presidency is smooth and simple. Today at a press conference (which I watched on the BYU TV web site) it was announced that Thomas S. Monson is the new President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with Henry B. Eyring as 1st Counselor and Dieter F. Uchtdorf as 2nd Counselor.

After a statement from each member of the First Presidency, there were questions from the assembled media. President Monson answered almost all of them. Presidents Eyring and Uchtdorf just beamed through the entire thing. The whole press conference was quite nice. They made it quite clear that there would be no major changes in doctrine, and that they would continue to expand across the world.

President Monson, President Eyring, and President Uchtdorf… our prayers are with you all!
