Elder Bowen’s General Conference Talk


General Conference so far has been uplifting. I have enjoyed the talks and the music. One talk that touched me particularly was Elder Shayne M. Bowen’s from Saturday morning. He spoke about parents losing children to death. The grief is severe but the guilt and anger can become toxic and destructive. Christ offers reassurance in the resurrection and assuagement through the Atonement.

As a side note: I met Elder Bowen a couple times when he visited our previous ward. I was impressed when he took the time to meet with our youth and teach our young men – offering to answer whatever questions they had (and as Young Men’s President I was more than happy to turn my lesson time over to one of the Seventy). He is a great teacher and has a deep love and knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

One thought on “Elder Bowen’s General Conference Talk

  1. I loved that talk. Death seemed to be a prevailing theme, but in a good way. I have been pondering over how to offer comfort and hope to my cousins who recently lost their dad. I was prompted to read the record in John 14. I noticed that a few other talks referenced these scriptures, so I know I can share these with confidence to my cousins.I feel that the Lord wants us to not “be troubled or afraid” of death. It seem’s peculiar dosen’t it. But I know that we are “being prepared” for more.
