LDS General Conference
For those who believe that Joseph indeed saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and seek to partake of the restored gospel, we are subject to the whims of those who have been called to lead the Church and must find a balance in living a full and fulfilling life without risking our relationship with and activity in the Church that we believe is important.
After listening to the opening session of conference, it seems the church is closing ranks even more, focusing on the active members, the covenant keepers, the faithful families, and ignoring even the inactives or others who don’t exactly fit the mold.
All of us approach general conference in our own way, based on where we are and what is right for us. That’s between us and God or our higher power. Keep an open mind, and allow yourself the opportunity to discover something you didn’t know before that speaks truth to you. The source may surprise you.
As general conference approaches, Affirmation President Carson Tueller shares his belief that God wants us to find and be our whole selves, and that includes embracing ourselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people.
The Affirmation Board of Directors and Leadership Team will be meeting in Salt Lake City, April 5-6 in conjunction with LDS General Conference.
