I am happy to raise my hand and voice in full support and sustaining of the new First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over the course of my entire adult life, I have grown to love and admire Presidents Nelson, Oaks and Eyring. Their leadership, wisdom and love is a force for good – not only in the Church, but in the world.
As is always the case when there is a leadership transition, it becomes quickly obvious that the Lord has prepared His servants for the appropriate time and place. This is no exception. The unique strengths and knowledge that these brethren possess are remarkable. Even more important is their willingness to do, and voice, the will of God.
We are in good hands – God’s hands. It is now up to us to decided what to do with it.
On an additional note, I woke up with a story in my head that I had not thought of in a long time. I leave it to you to apply it as you desire:
One night at sea, a ship’s captain saw lights of another ship heading directly towards him on a collision course. He had his signalman blink to the other ship: “Change your course 10 degrees south.”
The reply came back, “No. Change your course 10 degrees north.”
The ship’s captain answered, “I’m a full captain – change your course south.”
To which the reply was, “Well, I’m a seaman first class – change your course north.”
This infuriated the captain, so he signaled back, “I say change your course south. I’m on a battleship.”
To which the reply came, “And I say change your course north. I’m in a lighthouse.”
