Salt Lake City, Utah — On Saturday for the first time after two years, church leaders and a handful of members from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met in person for their semi-annual general conference.
Elder Jeffrey R. Holland with the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles touched on this in his message.
“Friends, in our present moment we find all manner of divisions and subdivisions, sets and subsets, digital tribes and political identities, with more than enough hostility to go around,” said Holland. “Might we ask ourselves if a ‘higher and holier’ life, to use President Nelson’s phrase, is something we could seek?”
President Russell M. Nelson invited a multicultural choir to sing during the afternoon session.
The Latter-day Saints from all around the world sang virtually for the past few conferences in the pandemic.
This was the first time a multicultural choir had been invited to sing at the conference center.
