180th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning Session

I know that in areas where the Church has a lot of members, General Conference is shown on TV, but where I am for years we’ve only been able to get GC at Church. Many years ago it was only at the Stake Centre, but now we can get it at our own Ward Meetinghouse. Now with the amazing Internet broadcast, we don’t have to go, but we still feel like you have to on Sunday morning, kind of like it is “regular” Church. So, off we went.


The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang On This Day of Joy and Gladness

The session was conducted by President Henry B Eyring

The choir sang Christ the Lord Is Risen Today

The invocation was offered by Elder Kenneth Johnson

The choir sang This is the Christ

President Dieter F Uchtdorf

  • Told story of a statue of Christ in Germany that was damaged in the war. It was fixed, but the hands were shattered. A sign was put up that said “You are my hands”
  • It is not good to make others feel as though they are deficient
  • We are all in need of mercy
  • In our zeal, we confuse the sin and sinner
  • Every person we meet is a VIP to our Heavenly Father
  • A friend loveth at all times and a brother is born in adversity
  • True love requires action
  • Love is the grand motive of the Plan of Salvation

Elder Richard G Scott

  • Easter should bring peace and joy
  • He rose with healing in His wings
  • Saviour’s atonement allows us to repent
  • Heavenly Father didn’t forsake Him. The atonement had to happen with Christ on His own
  • Learn about the atonement at the temple
  • “I love and adore him”

Elder Donald L Hallstrom

  • In the difficult parts of life, there is only one source of peace
  • He shared several examples of people who chose to be bitter rather than choosing peace
  • We need to choose peace

The choir and congregation sang Rejoice, the Lord Is King!

Sister Cheryl C Lant

  • We need to bring our children to Christ
  • Learn to love the Lord and our families
  • Become worthy examples
  • Teach them truths of the gospel

Elder Quentin L Cook

  • If we are to be His disciples, we must reverence the sacrament
  • He didn’t teach a class in ethical behaviour. He was the Son of God
  • You can disagree, but don’t be disagreeable
  • We live in a noisy, contentious world
  • If we want the Holy Ghost, we must slow down
  • None is exempt from the storms of life
  • Get to higher ground and cling to the saving ordinances

The choir sang When He Comes Again

President Thomas S Monson

  • Referenced the painting “A Hopeless Dawn
  • “If a man die, shall he live again?”
  • If there is a design, there must be a designer
  • Man alone has capacity of faith
  • He recounted Christ’s life
  • He passed beneath all things that he might save all things

The choir sang He Is Risen

The benediction was offered by Wolfgang H Paul
