I enjoyed General Conference this month. I mean I really enjoyed it. In fact, I have to say it was likely the most inspiring conference I have ever seen.
By inspiring, I meant I felt motivated to change myself. Maybe this is too personal, but I felt I needed to work on being less judgmental, more selfless, more grateful, and more patient.
Mary would likely argue this point, but upon reflection earlier thisa month, I found that I am far too self-centred. I realized that if I ever wanted to make a difference in the lives of others, that needed to change.
Related to this was the idea that I needed to change my efforts as an elders quorum president.
No one will remember whether I increased home teaching by 10%. No one will remember whether I was on top of having someone assigned to teach the lesson each week. No one will remember whether I held regular PPIs. No one will remember I was the longest-serving EQP in this ward in the last ten years, if not longer.
After the priesthood session of conference, I felt I needed to focus on being a minister.
But what does that mean? How does one minister properly?
And thus I turn to you, the reader, to answer those two questions. Please share your thoughts.
