178th Semiannual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon Session

As we’ve done the last few conferences, we watched the afternoon session at home. It was awesome! The Church has a new video player that performed incredibly. When you visit http://lds.org/move/ you can see a video that is about 640 x 360 pixels. There is a full screen option, which actually does go to a full screen (no toolbar or anything). My laptop has a resolution of 1440 x 900 and the video was the entire width and was about 810 pixels high. The quality was perfect. It was very impressive. I’ve always enjoyed watching conference more at home, and this is going to make it even more tempting to stay at home!

    • building Zion
    • To establish Zion we need 3 things

      2) be a holy people
      3) care for the poor effectively
  • Elder David A. Bednar
    • continuing his talk about prayer from April
      1) prayer will be more meaningful as we council with the Lord in all our doings
      2) prayer will be more meaningful as we express heartfelt gratitude (D&C 59:21)
      3) prayer will be more meaningful as we pray for others with real intent and sincere heart
