General Conference

Conference was nice this year. It seemed to go by so fast though. I saw a theme this year on the simple elements of the gospel, Christ's atonement and repentence were mentioned quite a bit. I liked the Sunday morning talk from one of the quorum of the twelve (I was ironing shirts at the time and don't remember which one) about coming unto Christ with our burdens. I liked the poem on the carpenter of Nazareth mending the plow and the doll and mending our broken hearts.

Loving our neighbors and being christlike was a big theme too. President Hinckly spoke in the priesthood session about prejudice and racism. Several others in the various sessions also spoke on tolerance and loving others regardless of creed, race, or nationality. We need to be nicer to one another.

It just went by so fast!
