So here we are at another General Conference. I’m not sure how the dates usually work out, but the April conference was as early as it could be (the first Sunday in April was the 1st) and the October conference is as late as it can be (the first Sunday in October is the 7th). I wonder how often that happens…
Our family rituals are going to be the same as always. I’m at work right now, so I’ll watch the first session at work. I’ll join my family at home for the second session at home. Tonight my Dad and I will go out. We usually go out after the Priesthood session, but we’re going to go out beforehand to a Chinese food buffet by my house. Good stuff! Then we’ll go to the Priesthood session together.
Sunday morning of conference is the best! We normally go to Church for 9:30 am weekly, but General Conference Sunday allows us to sleep in. We usually have a big breakfast and then go for a walk. Then we’ll watch both sessions at home.
One thing that is different this year, is that because of the way the dates lined up, this is actually the weekend of Canadian Thanksgiving. We’d normally have our big dinner on Sunday, but obviously that can’t really happen now. The plan is to do it Monday at dinner (most people are off on Monday).
I don’t have any particular expectations for conference and I don’t have any particular questions in my heart that need answering. However, I’m looking forward to being inspired and motivated by the leaders of the Church.
