To achieve peace, security and harmony in the world, “we must really mean what we say. We should be sincere about each other’s well-being and in our good intentions towards one another.”
That was Elder Jörg Klebingat’s message to a session of the Fifth Congress of Traditional and World Religions convened in Astana, Kazakhstan, on Thursday, June 11, 2015. Elder Klebingat, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ First Quorum of the Seventy and Europe East Area presidency, is the second Church official to address this triennial global conference of religions. Elder Paul B. Pieper of the Seventy, who accompanied Elder Klebingat Thursday, spoke to the congress in 2009.
