    President Uchtdorf"s message about what the Savior
    has been trying to teach us is truly wonderful.
    Love requirres action. We must reach out and share the Gospel with a pure Christ like love.
    Without the fault finding or making others feel
    un wanted or needed.
    My mother seved a mission. She was told by her Ward
    Bishop they would not support her financially. Her response was, Did I ask? She loves everyone and has
    raised her family in the church.She always said its the people who are imperfect. She is 1 of 12 siblings raised in LDS Church. The Love each one has for each other and their familes are remarkable.
    She loves her children we love her.As a young widow
    she raised us to rely on the Lord. To follow the councel of the Prophets. Don't let anyone or anything keep us out of Heaven, has been her constant warning to us. To go and partake of the Sacrament and renew our covenants. We were taught never to critize the leaders.Your talk is a reminder
    to always stay close to our Heavenly Father

    Thank You President Uchtdorf

    President Uchtdorf's talk gives us HOPE for being better people. We need to do less judging of others around us, for God is the only true judge who has the power and the right to make correct judgments of us all.

    President Uchtdorf's talk was the most beautiful of any talk given in all my 47 years!

    It was the first time I heard
    over the pulpit,
    from a Member of the 1st Presidency,
    an Apostle,
    a non-American....
    The GOSPEL (Good News).

    This IS the message the Savior was trying to teach us.

    Thank you again Elder Uchtdorf.

    I completely agree with you. Thank you for your good thoughts.

    Elder Uchtdorf is indeed a wonderful speaker who speaks from his heart.

    I am afraid though there are too many who chose to be full of hate and never forgiving. There will always be some folks who think everything is someone elses fault instead of admitting that it is their own. They would rather shove the blame and tell lies. Stubborn people are hard to reach when they think they do no wrong.

    I thik this is one of the most beautiful talks I have ever heard. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We also have all been hurt by others offenses. Imagine how different our lives can be if we felt "more sorrow for sin" as the sinner and more compassion when offended because "in the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that the eye can't see"

    This talk spoke to my heart like no other during the conference sessions. I am a fifth generation Mormon with pioneer ancestors on every side. For the last sixteen years of my life I have been inactive trying to find a reason to justify complete separation from the church. The reason is that I have felt like other people are so much better than I am, I have nothing to add, and that many times I feel looked down upon because of a part history of depression and emotional problems. There have been times I have looked down on others myself for different reasons, so I know how the process works. During this conference I prayed that someone would give a talk that would provide hope and tend to turn me around and provide direction. I am a sixty plus year old grandmother that has had a hard time knowing the feeling of true love. My mother died when I was a little girl and I learned to bury feelings to cope. I had a hard time loving my farents because of their constant criticism and trying to make me a clone of them.

    I know how hard it would be if we didn't feel the hands of Jesus outreaching for us! Why? Because he loves us all! In a familiar Christian hymn ABIDE WITH ME FAST FALLS THE EVENTIDE THE DARKNESS DEEPENS LORD WITH ME ABIDE! WHEN OTHER HELPERS FAIL AND COMFORTS FLEE HELP OF THE HELPLESS OH ABIDE WITH ME! Think of the words of this hymn GOD will help you when you are down! He helps us all! AMEN!!

    Passing judgment and holding grudges on others has to one of the biggest sins of the day. some members need to get over themselves, because none of us are without fault nor perfect.

    President, Elder Uchtdorf gave a well needed talk to the members today. I hope it does some good.

    I do appreciate this good mans words.

    Amen LDS Democrat -- I could hardly contain my thankfulness for this talk. I wish it could be replayed during Sacrament next week... and the next week ... and the next week... until it sinks in that we need to be more concerned with whether we are being sincere followers of Christ (His Hands)than harshly verbally attacking and judging those whose opinions may differ from ours. Christ was all about humbly loving, accepting and serving all. Should we do any less? I LOVED THIS TALK! Following on the heels of his fantastic talk at the YW Broadcast, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this apostle.

    I loved this talk. I am wondering about that statue of Christ and would love to see a picture of it. Thanks President Uchdorf.

    I am an African American convert from the inner city of New York City. Overall, I have never wanted to feel like a charity case, or treated like a "project". I try to conduct myself with dignity, and to practice principles of self reliance. I am 24 years old, and I have been on my own since I was a young teen. I come from a family of entrepreneurs.

    Despite all of that, I have often felt ostracized by certain attitudes that I have discened from some members that sound as if: This is their church, and they have done me a favor.

    I am one of those converts that have had too many spiritual witnesses to allow anything to separate me from the Love of God..."The church is perfect, but the people aren't". On the other hand, I love the members of this church, and so many of them have been wondrous friends. So many of the members have reached out to me,So many of the members have reached out to me, loved me, and taught me. I have so much to learn; yet, I am grateful for the love and friendship that I have received.

    I loved Elder Uchtdorf's talk this morning. He is such a wonderful person. He talked about judging others which seems to be a big problem with many members,and we as church members need to work on this sin. There is too much judgment of others who don't look and act like us so we therefor condemn them.. We scorn the inactive which we probably drove out of the church in the first place. It is time to heal and repent.
