Saturday’s sessions of General Conference were rich in content and counsel not only for the community of Saints, but for the entire world.  Never in the history of the world has there been better opportunities for anyone to be able to disseminate words and counsel of living Prophets, Seers and Revelators.  The Internet, cable and satellite have transformed how these conference sessions are available to the world.  

Again, The Church’s website will have a live stream here.    If you want to experience some of the newest technology, try the LDS Newsroom’s Twitter feed, which you can follow here:  twitter.com/LDSNewsroom.  The twitter search term for conference is #ldsconf, as well as #LDS and #Mormon.  Plug those exact search terms into Google, and you’ll fine a plethroa of information about General Conference.  Or, perform the same search directly on Twitter, and you will be amazed at what you will find in terms of General Conference discussion.  The Newsroom also has an article on the conference.  In the Bloggernacle, I’m certain there will be several blogs commenting on and following General Conference.  I will link them as I find them.  BCC, in addition to its live blog coverage also has a Twitter feed, which you can follow here: http://twitter.com/ByCommonConsent.  Millennial Star also has a Twitter feed here:  http://twitter.com/Millennialstar.  

BCC’s conference thread is here.

From the S.F. Chronical Political Blog:

“We believe ALL families matter and we do not believe in discrimination, therefore, our family will vote against Prop. 8,” she said.

Steve Young speaks for his family.  Thomas S. Monson speaks for Jesus Christ.

General Conference

It’s Sunday Morning, during the Tabernacle Choir’s Spoken Word broadcast, just prior to the Sunday Morning Session of General Conference.  The counsel and addresses by the General Authorities, including members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and First Presidency, prophets, seers, and revalators have been magnificent.  Their counsel is timely, wise, and directly to the point–at least for my life.  I look forward to the two remaining sessions of conference.  For ‘nacle discussion of General Conference please check out these open threads, Mormon Mentality, By Common Consent, Times and Seasons, (more…)
