Editor’s note: “This week from the pulpit” highlights recent messages by General Authorities and General Officers of the Church.
General conference weekend is always full of inspiring messages. But did you know that after general conference many Church leaders share social media posts about their talks? And some of their posts this week have also shared conference stories you may not have heard.
For example, on the Wednesday before general conference, March 31, 2021, all 50 women leaders who have recently been called as international area organization advisers met with the female General Officers of the Church. This was the first meeting for the new international area organization advisers.
Young Women General President Bonnie H. Cordon wrote on Facebook, “It was truly a historic day! Sitting in my chair, watching each cherished face appear on screen as we gathered for a worldwide meeting—from Japan to Johannesburg, from Spain to Sao Paulo, and me right here in the United States—I couldn’t help but think back to the very first Relief Society meeting held by Emma Smith, Eliza R. Snow, and their small group of faithful sisters. Look how far we’ve come!”
After their release during the Saturday afternoon session, the outgoing Primary General Presidency, President Joy D. Jones, Sister Lisa L. Harkness, and Sister Cristina B. Franco, shared posts reflecting on their years of service.
Sister Michelle D. Craig also shared what her meeting with President Dallin H. Oaks was like when he called her to the Young Women General Presidency three years ago and she reflected on the two questions he asked her.
