The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds two large General Conferences per year. These are held during the first weekends of April and October each year. Over the course of two days there will be 5 two-hour sessions. The first session begins Saturday October 4th at 10:00 am Mountain Time. Check out the Time Zone Countdown.
All of my life, I have been filled with anticipation and excitement for Conference. When I was younger, it meant that I could sleep a little later on Sunday morning, and watch church on TV in my pajamas. 🙂
As I got older it took on a much more meaningful and sacred significance.
The beautiful messages of the prophet and apostles often seem directed right to me personally. I receive guidance for my own personal struggles or worries. Most importantly, each special weekend fills up my ‘spiritual batteries’, and gives me a renewed strength to face the struggles of life.
This weekend is going to be especially significant for me personally, as I will have the tremendous responsibility and privilege to sing in three of the five sessions. I will also be performing Music and the Spoken Word on Sunday Morning (9:30 am Mountain Time). All of the music for this Conference was carefully and lovingly chosen. I am anxious to share these beautiful songs with the world. I approach this assignment prayerfully. I hope that this gift of music will touch each soul, and help all who listen feel closer to our Savior Jesus Christ, and to heaven.
Although each General Conference is organized for the members of the LDS faith, it is not limited to members alone! All the world is invited and encouraged to join. You may attend a live session on Temple Square, listen by radio, watch on local or satellite television, and anyone throughout the whole world with internet access can view through online streaming! Each session is offered in MANY languages! Please check the links I have included throughout this post to find what works best for you. These are wonders and marvels of our modern age! What a gift. Go to THIS WEBPAGE for all viewing and streaming information.
I invite you to come, and listen to a living prophet’s voice this weekend! Hear the beautiful music and messages of peace, and find spiritual renewal.
