Historic!!!??? A Sister just conducted a GenConf Session
Broker replied to Broker's topic in General DiscussionsNope, not confused. Listen to Pres Oaks opening remarks. He calls this a "unique women's session of General Conference." He then says the church is embarking on a new direction with the Saturday evening sessions, which may have varying focuses. This one just happens to focus on women. While sisters may have conducted past sessions, those were sessions for women, conducted by women. Today's session was for everyone, it was a "general session" of conference (though in person attendance was limited to the women), with a focus on the sisters. Women have never before conducted a General Session of Conference...until today.
Did a subtle, but historic change just happen? Pres Oaks explained the Women's Session was a General Session of GenConf, just like the other sessions, just targeted to specific audience. I think this is the first time a woman has ever conducted a General Session of Conference. What's next, RelSoc Presidents conducting SacMtg, cats and dogs living together? Personally, I'm all for Sisters conducting more general church meetings and more (you know what I mean)😉
