I think back fondly of being involved in the construction of the Conference
Center in the late 90's. Spent the majority of my time working on the
Balcony Level, and if I'm there with my family, I like to point out little
features that are missed by the majority of folks. I've never worked on a
project like that, and I never will again. Even better was that the First
Presidency gave those of us construction workers on the CC passes to the first
sessions after completion. Pretty humbling experience, and one that I will pass
down to my grandkids.
Without Question--when conference is over: some will complain that Church
leaders are out of touch and insensitive. Others will claim that the General
Authorities are pandering to part of the membership over one political issue or
another. And...others will find solice in comfort offered; their religious hope
and faith renewed by the spirit of the meetings; wisdom in guidance given; and,
a desire to improve themselves based upon the teaching of Christ as expounded.
Everyone has the strong possiblity that they will recieve just what they came to
conference looking for.
"Yes, I guess nothing changes much with conference."Probably
because nothing changes much with the people.
I can't wait to hear all of the opinions of the general authorities. It is
one of my favorite times of the year.
Themes for this April conference will likely be temple, tithing, teaching
prospective missionaries and porn is terrible and be sure that you stay close to
the prophet and that all trials are given to us to teach and try our faith.
These all seem to be what has been talked about for the last 12-15 years. Yes, I guess nothing changes much with conference.
