I've been thinking about General Conference this week.
I love Brother Griffin's idea of "specific conference." The leaders and general authorities are speaking to the church generally, but they're also speaking to each one of us individually. Each speaker sought revelation and pondered for a long time about what they were supposed to speak about. Like the doctrines in the Book of Mormon, only the most important stuff with the most relevancy to us made it to the top.
This semester has brought to the forefront of my life a lot of questions and concerns that I've never had to face before. Before general conference began this weekend, I said a prayer asking God to help me experience a "specific conference" over the course of these 10 hours of talks. I'm very grateful for Elder Holland's kickoff talk at the beginning of conference, reminding everyone what to expect and inviting everyone in attendance to have a "specific conference" too.
