General Conference Book Club Week 1: Repetition and Favorites

genconfbutton1Welcome to another round of General Conference Book Club (a.k.a. GCBC).  Wow, what a feast and what a blessing to experience another two days of counsel from the Lord.

To anyone who is checking out GCBC for the first time, the goal is to read one General Conference talk a week and discuss it together as an on-line “book club.”  If you want more information about how it works, go here.  And then join us.

A new talk will be posted each Sunday, but this week we’ll just share some general impressions from this weekend’s General Conference.  Once all the talks are posted online in their entirety (some time later this week), then we’ll be able to dive into the talks and study them one by one.

Two things to discuss this week:

1.  President Eyring taught that “When the words of prophets seem repetitive, that should rivet our attention.” What topics did you notice were repeated often, either throughout the various sessions or as a carry-over from the previous general conference?

2.  What was your favorite talk?  What principles from that talk stood out to you?

Please share your thoughts in the comments below.  Thanks for being a part of this GCBC discussion.
