    Was it a good idea to kickoff with Elder Holland? Or can we just call it good and all go home at this point, cause that was wonderful, and anything more is just going to be downhill?

    Did she replace it with "fair dinkum"?

    He's probably at his place in Jackson and needed to do some grocery shopping.

    He's doing a Sunday Service at the Gateway between sessions.

    Interesting talk by Oaks. Of course, I won't know if what he said about doctrine is doctrine until he becomes President, dies, and he is quoted by subsequent Prophets.

    Good practical talk.

    Solid first session.

    President Nelson to give an address AFTER Elder Bednar during the Saturday afternoon session. Something is about to happen.

    Probably some minor administrative changed that will be talked about as a major change based on revelation from God.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Funk, I like you. You’re a good man.

    Please think about whether this is the time and place.

    So were all the Area Authoities released? That was a long list.

    No matter what I do, I'm going to be called the bitter apostate, so I might as well play the part.

    I'll step out though, I'm probably a little too salty based in Oaks latest comments this week.

    Cook with the fire hose. But among other things he just announced the budget would be divided equitably between YM and YW based on numbers of members.

    Not sure what to make of some of the announced changes. Some of it seems like change for the sake of change, at least as it pertains to this administration’s fixation on vernacular.

    Happy to see the Stake YM, YW, and SS presidencies disbanded. That was long overdue.

    Yeah, but he also announced the greater role of the stake level folks in activities. Unless this is accompanied by an increase in the ward budget, expect a slashing of the ward youth budgets as the stake withholds a greater portion of the ward budget allowance. But hey, it'll be equal.

    Only ward YM presidencies got kicked to the curb. Stake levels are still there.

    That was a little bewildering. I need a written summary.

    Some stakes will no doubt do better jobs at dividing funds than others. This is similar to how we manage our budget in the military. Sometimes the training is collective, and sometimes separately. It takes time and experience to understand how to balance use of funds. So expect there to be a learning curve just as there likely is for those who now control the budget.

    No there's change there too. Members of the HC will function as stake YM and SS presidents.

    Yeah, I heard that wrong. President will be a HC but the presidency will still exist. Too bad.

    Look, you're kind of being a dick. That's the best reason to step out.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Right. But there will still be presidencies, so the only thing that's changed at the stake level is the number of potential candidates to serve as the SYMP and SSSP.

    What it means is that perhaps now Wards will function as they were always meant to: The EQ President and Relief Society president will minister to and take care of the adult members of the Ward, allowing the Bishop (and his councilors) to focus on the youth, act as a judge in Israel, manage Ward finances and meet the welfare needs of the congregation.
