Well, I am well into the first full day of General Conference. Last night’s opening worship was amazing. I found it to be a really good start to things. The service was very good for a experiential person like me. Lots of music, dancing, color, and excitement. After worship, we went into the business portion. Then, I felt like going home. I didn’t get back to the hotel until around 11:45pm. I had to be ready to go by 6:00am this morning.
One thing that bothered me yesterday was a debate on whether we should have parliamentarians appointed to legislative groups. The debate turned into white, middle-aged men from Southern US against it, and minority groups for it. It overwhelmingly passed, but was a debate that stressed me out.
I report more tonight on the days activities, including the first ever Young Persons Address…which was awesome.
