General Conference - Saturday session
I just LOVE conference weekend, don't you? Not only is it totally edifying but I love being able to "go to church" in my jammies! I think every single talk was wonderful and I really feel like I took something away from each one. I always walk away from conference realizing I have alot of work to do!!! My favorite talk today was Elder Oak's about the Sacrament. This is something I have been thinking alot about lately. Right before Tanner was ordained to the Aaronic priesthood in December we studied the priesthood as a family and specifically some of the symbolism in the sacrament - (since he was going to be passing it we thought that would be a good thing for him to know but in the end I think I learned the most!) I just recently listened to a talk by a favorite speaker, John Bytheway, called "The best 3 hours of the week". He shared some ideas about how we can get the most out of our sunday worship services-especially sacrament meeting. It really made me realize how I could improve my reverence and understanding during the sacrament. I think there have been times in my past when the three hour block of church was more of a social thing for me than a spiritual one. I have completely changed how I feel about that now. Elder Oaks talked about things we can do BEFORE sacrament meeting starts to prepare ourselves. He talked about dressing appropriately to take the Sacrament too. I just loved his talk! Which was your favorite so far?
