News from Utah

Paul Edwards: President Hinckley used to say, about working with other faiths, he would say, “Bring all the good that you have and come and let us see if we can add to it.” I’m interested to know what was some of the good that came from the other faiths that you met with this week?

Paul Edwards: Let’s say just a bit more about that because as you were talking today, President Eyring, you came after a pastor who talked about no marriage in heaven. What did you add to his teachings?
