Mike Otterson, writing this week for On Faith, gives some background on the twice-annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which begins Saturday morning and can be viewed live in the embedded video below.
“General Conference - all five two-hour sessions of it - is a collection of sermons,” that will be delivered after prayerful discernment by church leaders. Writes Otterson:
“There will be no great debates, no huge policy changes to announce to the general membership. You can be certain that there will be no political addresses from the podium, and it’s highly unlikely anyone will mention even indirectly the two Latter-day Saints running for president of the United States.”
