In a historic event, the Church celebrated the 40th anniversary of the priesthood revelation at the "Be One" event last Friday.
After attending this beautiful celebration, Sister Reyna Aburto shared an incredible message. Though we may have different paths in life, we are all striving to return to our Heavenly Father.
"Every one of our paths is different, yet we walk them together," she shared on Facebook. "Our path is not about what we have done or where we have been; it is about where we are going and what we are becoming, in unity.”
With many of you, I attended the Church’s “Be One” celebration this past weekend, marking the 40th anniversary of the revelation on the priesthood. I felt our Father’s love for all His children and again felt an invitation to love all people—those who apparently are not like me and those who are.
I ride the train every day. Many times I work on my computer, but sometimes I feel a prompting to talk to certain people. I see and speak with people from all walks of life and from various nations, from Haiti to China to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As I follow these promptings and talk to them, it’s amazing to realize that we are all just people—people trying to do our best with the knowledge and experience we’ve been given in our lives.
As human beings, we are all children of God. We have so much in common, and at the same time we are different and unique. As I said in my recent general conference talk: “Every one of our paths is different, yet we walk them together. Our path is not about what we have done or where we have been; it is about where we are going and what we are becoming, in unity.”
