183rd_annual_general_conference_screenshot

After the morning session of General Conference I watched The World Report (I like their new logo and theme). I then had a nap for about an hour. I awoke to some of the Bible videos being played. I haven`t seen them before, and they looked pretty good.

Well, here we go with the final session…


President Dieter F Uchtdorf conducted

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang  Come, Ye Children of the Lord

Sister Carol M Stephens offered the invocation

The choir sang Tell Me the Stories of Jesus

Elder Jeffrey R Holland

  • All things are possible to him that believeth
  • When facing the challenge of faith, the father in the scripture exerts his faith first, then acknowledges his weakness
  • The size of your faith is not the issue; it is the integrity you show when your faith is tested
  • When questions arise, don’t start your quest by saying you don’t have faith
  • Be as candid as you need to be, but if you need to be healed, don’t let your questions stay in the way of faith and its miracles
  • Imperfect people are all God has to work with (other than Jesus)
  • When doubt comes, do not be afraid to ask for help

Elder Dallin H Oakes

  • Marriage in the temple is for time and all eternity
  • “In order to contend, you always need two people, and I will never be one of them”
  • “I need you to hug me”
  • A child who sings is a happy child
  • I love the Book of Mormon and my Savior Jesus Christ
  • It is not enough to know the scriptures; we have to live them

Elder Erich W Kopischke

  • We all want acceptance
  • Unfortunately we sometimes try to get acceptance from the wrong sources

Elder Bruce D Porter

23 Miraculous Pop Culture Last Suppers

The other day I came across a site that has renderings of “The Last Supper”, but instead of Christ and the Apostles, there are The Simpsons, Star Wars, etc. I know that some people might think this sort of thing is disrespectful, but I think it is all in good fun. I’m impressed with some of the creativity 🙂

The Last Supper!

Last night my wife did the Family Home Evening lesson. She called it “Scriptures In A Bag” (I’m not sure whether she made this up or found it online). She had several small paper bags on the floor, and each of them had an object or two in it. By seeing the objects in the bag, we were supposed to come up with a scripture that related to those objects. There were pictures of temples in one bag, a container of water in the other, a boat, notepad and pencil, and more. One of the bags that a toy peach, tomato and muffin in it. I joked with the family that I didn’t remember seeing any scripture that had a peach, tomato and muffin in it. My son that blurted out very loudly, “The last supper!”
