I'm surprised to admit this but I can honestly say that may favorite talk of this entire General Conference came from one of the sisters. It was Bonnie Oscarson's talk on service. Hands down. She touched on what it really means to be a member of the church and a disciple of Christ.
Anybody else have a favorite talk.?
Did you notice that also? When we stood to sing the half-time hymn in priesthood session there were no lyrics showing up on the screen like they normally do.
According to United Latter-day Saints:
"Many members of the church noticed a change in the broadcast this past general conference weekend: there were no hymn lyrics written on screen during the congregational hymns.
According to lds.org, the change was deliberate:
We are no longer broadcasting the lyrics to the congregational hymn.
Why, you ask?
All the world receives the same video feed. We then add over 90 live languages to that video. In a global church, it no longer makes sense to have everyone view the English lyrics on their screen."
So in this day and age of technology and live streaming why do we not have segmented talks of GC as soon as they are given? For instance if I wanted to see Elder Holland's talk but missed the session he gave it in, is there a centralized source where I could watch it?
Maybe I just haven't searched long enough.
Wait! You're Not HiJolly! (No ... No, I'm not. HiJolly's a much better singer than I am. Perhaps I can persuade him to give me some emergency lessons in the next two weeks? ) Anyway ...

Good news, bad news!
OW will NOT be assembling en masse at Temple Square to try to gain admittance to the priesthood session. Instead, OW members will be attending their local priesthood sessions at stake centers across the world.
Damn, I love these women!
