“More needs to be done to increase awareness of, access to and confidence in trusted resources by Latter-day Saints and seekers of truth,” said Elder Kevin W. Pearson of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The general authority spoke Friday, August 3, 2018, at the FairMormon Conference held in Provo, Utah. This is the first time a senior leader of the Church has addressed the conference. Speakers at the annual event cover thought-provoking Church topics in the areas of history, science, and theology.
“Independent voices are needed in reaching out to those among us who are struggling to find and sustain faith and in responding to those who unfairly criticize, misrepresent, distort and demean the history, doctrine and leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” he told the audience gathered at the Utah Valley Convention Center on the last day of the three-day conference.
