    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Conference Experiences

general conferenceThe Ensign and New Era have done something interesting on their Web pages, posting a collection of comments they received about general conference. These appear to be raw, unedited expressions of testimony, gratitude, and faith. I personally find them quite a welcome change from much of what you read in the bloggernacle (not that it’s all bad, just a bit too analytical, self-important, or rhetoric-heavy for my tastes sometimes). The effort to create a kind of (correlated) interactivity on the Web is laudable if slightly clunky (owing to the unattractive lds.org Web design, but that’s another issue). Read a few of the comments by adults and youth, and see what you think:

  1. I’m very glad these comments were printed. How wonderful to be able to read such candid comments that are still strong in the spirit that we felt during General Conference. And how uplifting and strengthening to know that so many of us shared the same feelings. Reading their comments helps me realize we truly are a united church and we can help each other stand strong.
